RIP Albert Hadley
I heard the sad news on Friday that Albert Hadley had passed away. He was an artist that will be sorely missed in our industry. His great talent was bringing the modern into the classic. He had an elegant and restrained design style, along with one of the most wonderful personalities. A gentleman at all times, he was modest and supportive of other designers.
If I had a furniture launch, he always sent a note congratulating me. At a party, I would feel a tap on my back and would turn around and Mr. Hadley would be saying hello. We all owe him a debt of gratitude for raising our industry to a higher level.
