Carleton Varney THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A LEGENDARY DESIGNER

While he may have been the protégé at one time, he has now surpassed the mentor. Carleton Varney is one of America’s best-known interior designers and president of Dorothy Draper & Company, Inc., in Manhattan, keeping the flame of its namesake alive. Many considered Draper, the legendary doyenne of interior design from the 1920s to the ’60s, a pioneer of the design industry and the Martha Stewart of her time. A savvy self-promoter and sharp businesswoman, she designed residential and commercial interiors from soup to nuts, right down to the hotel matchstick covers. The Greenbrier’s bold staircase, and black and white diamond-patterned floor designs would make Dorothy Draper proud.
