MILIEU in New York

Most interior designers claim that travel is their best source of inspiration. When Barry Dixon appeared on May 30 in the Vervain showroom in New York's D&D building, he told the assembled crowd of admirers about his boyhood life in places as disparate as Korea and South Africa and the American South. And when the guests saw the array of new fabrics and trims he has designed for Vervain-prints, embroideries, silks, velvets-the scope of his experiences abroad become fully evident. MILIEU's Design Director, Leslie Newsom Rascoe, graciously introduced Barry Dixon and conducted a Q&A with him. He then led the audience on a visual tour of his 1907 house in Virginia, a grand Edwardian-style residence set on three hundred acres. MILIEU has featured Barry's designs in our pages and we were happy to host the event in which some of his most personal designs were revealed.
