From Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s Old Westbury, Long Island, estate to Oliver Stone’s New York City apartment, Geoffrey Bradfield has brought his luxurious interior design and style to a long list of Fortune 500 clients and the most prominent aristocratic and royal families in the world. Now he is collaborating with Sebastian + Barquet, the famed design gallery, to curate a new exhibition “Wit Whimsy” for the gallery. The exhibition, that also celebrates Sebastian + Barquet’s new location, features important 20th- and 21st-century furnishings, including pieces by Carlo Bugatti, Piero Fornasetti, George Nakashima, and Gio Ponti, all taken from the gallery’s collection.


The designer presented the exhibition, with a party, on February 5th, to the biggest design enthusiasts in New York City, including Geoffrey Bradfield, Roric Tobin, Ramis Barquet, Leila Heller, Patrick Askin, Preeti Jain, Kristen Toro, Justina Watorek, Brian Stewart, Thomas Paul, Manolo Cuellar, Michael Yasenak, Chie Roden, Salvatore Moltisanti, Benjamin Occhipinti and Harry Heissmann.
