Figure 1: In a two-bedroom apartment in the newly opened Olympic Tower condo building in midtown Manhattan, designers from Parish-Hadley warmed and cozied up an "apartment with views to Central Park and the Hudson River." ( Photographer: Bill Helms )
Figure 2: Featured in the October 1975 issue of House Beautiful Magazine, the Parish-Hadley designed apartment has a combo living/dining room that are "evening rooms, deep and muted to play up the city lights." ( Photographer: Bill Helms )
Figure 3: The dining area has a round table skirted with Brunschwig & Fils fabric surrounded by gilded chairs upholstered in dark brown leather. The framed sketches are all by Van Day Truex, a teacher and then Dean at Parsons School of Design from the 1930s through 1960s. ( Photographer: Bill Helms )
