TruexTruex by Scott Himmel for Karges
In the early 1930’s, a young American from the middle west attended the Paris branch of The Parsons School of Design. He stayed on to become an instructor and ultimately director. His name: Van Day Truex. At the onset of World War II, Truex moved to New York and became president of Parsons, recruiting the greatest interior decorators of the day as both teachers and guest critics. From 1947-1960, New York was the world capital of the decorative arts and at it’s center was The Parsons School and Truex who believed the rooms we live in should be nothing less than a celebration of the lives we lead. It is our mission to bring back the best of this era to contemporary interiors as a special collection within Karges by Hand. The name is in honor of Truex, inspiration comes not solely from Van, but from those he inspired as his era continues to inspire us.
“There’s a difference between existing and living.”-Van Day Truex
