Midweek Modness: Babs!

Barbara Walters apartment

A couple of months ago I found a copy of a book called Celebrity Homes: Architectural Digest Presents the Private Worlds of Thirty International Personalities.What this book illustrates is that by the 1970s, folks has begun to turn their backs on the sleek Danish modern styles and began embracing either an over-the-top Asian style or a humbler, Little House On The Prairie/Southwestern aesthetic. But Barbara Walters’ New York apartment still had some modern touches, like the Alexander Calder Prints and Eames lounge chair and ottoman (in what looks like lipstick red leather).
