Mark Hampton, An American Decorator... is both a love letter to [Duane Hampton's] late husband and a vivid portrait of the times he lived and worked in... A photographic memoir of Mr. Hampton's 40-year career. New York Times Lovingly penned by Mark Hampton's widow, Duane, this guide chronicles the fulfillment of his American dream, from humble beginnings to meteoric rise, showcasing interiors that proved him a master of style. Veranda Duane does justice to her late husband's legacy by combining careful research with personal insights in this comprehensive look at the designer's career. Recognized as 'an icon of American Style' by The New York Times, Mark Hampton left behind a diverse body of work when he died in 1998, with a portfolio that defies labels and ranges from modern to traditional. Hundreds of photographs, as well as Mark's watercolors and sketches, illustrate his varied projects for such clients as Jacqueline Onassis, Estee Lauder and the White House. Why We Love It: Mark's rags to riches story- having grown up in a small Indiana town before rising to world renown- is an example of the American Dream come true. Luxe He was one of America's great gentlemen decorators, with clients such as Pamela Harriman, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Estee Lauder. But Mark Hampton was no snob. He never forgot his roots as a small town boy, and he believed that good design and comfort should be accessible to anybody. Mark Hampton: An American Decorator, written by his widow, Duane, makes his ideas and principles- not to mention a survey of his dazzling rooms- available to all. Elle Decor Mark Hampton: An American Decorator, by Duane Hampton, is the first definitive look at this giant of design, captured as only his devilishly funny wife could. Mark, who died in 1998, was synonymous with English style, but his work was far more various. House Beautiful
