Here is an amazing interior, designed by Joseph Urban for New York socialite and writer Katherine Brush in 1933. In January 1933, House and Garden headlined its feature “Katherine Brush Goes Completely Modern.” This apartment also featured in Life Magazine as one of the more sensational examples of American modernism of the 30s. The study, shown in this photograph, demonstrates a stark modernist décor, paneled at the bottom with green leather quilted in geometric squares with polished redwood stretching above to a silvered ceiling. I love the chandelier too. It is sad that most of Urban’s furniture has not survived.
