Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the latest happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we take a look at designer and artist Luke Edward Hall’s latest book, The Central Park Conservancy Annual Gala, and Chefanie’s Dallas trunk show. Written by Natalie Aldridge.
Luke Edward Hall’s Kaleidoscopic World
British artist and designer Luke Edward Hall has released his second book, A Kind of Magic: The Kaleidoscopic World of Luke Edward Hall, and we cannot get enough of it. Hall has long been on our radar. Described by Vogue as a “design wonderkid,” it seems everything he touches turns to gold. Having studied menswear at Central Saint Martins to become an interior designer, artist, and all-around creative authority, Hall encapsulates a humorous yet sublimely classic sensibility in all his work. From the interiors of hotels, homes, and restaurants, to clothing, stationery, furniture, tableware, and more, he never ceases to surprise and delight.

In his second coffee table book, Hall offers a new perspective into his colorful world filled with Greco extravaganza. Like a divine cornucopia, each page shows an intimate view of his work and process. Truly a kind of magic, his kaleidoscopic world forces one to rethink historical motifs and ideas all while bringing a smile to the face. The book is now available here for purchase.
The Central Park Conservancy Annual Gala
Each Autumn New York’s society set steps out onto the lawn of Central Park for a special evening of drinks, dancing, and many desserts. The Central Park Conservancy Annual Gala celebrates the park generations of New Yorkers have cherished and depended on for respite from city life. The gala also raises funds to preserve and improve the park so New Yorkers can continue to enjoy the 843-acre backyard for decades to come.
After an evening of cocktails and dinner, the Conservancy’s Young Associates take over for dessert and dancing. This year’s gala took place on Rumsey Playfield where the theme was 60’s Mod. Young Associates co-chairs Isabella Massenet and Zachary Weiss made the evening a night to remember bring out of the best of 1960s glamour. The Young Associates then made their way downtown in an antique trolly car with music spun by co-host and DJ Isabella Massenet. The after party took place Nubeluz at the newly opened Ritz-Carlton in NoMad. What an evening and for a wonderful cause.
