• Lecture: Frances Elkins’ Avant Garde Interiors For the first half of the 20th century, Frances Elkins (1888-1953) pushed the boundaries of interior design by combining elements from disparate periods and styles — from French country to Art Deco, turn-of-the-century California, and chinoiserie — and gracefully unifying them into a cohesive whole. The resulting interiors were decidedly avant-garde, solidifying Elkins’ great influence on the future of design. From her travels in Paris with her brother, noted Chicago architect David Adler, design expert and author Stephen Salny traces Elkins’ path through a 30 year career as arbiter of taste and revolutionary designer. Following the illustrated talk, Salny signs copies of his critically-acclaimed book Frances Elkins: Interior Design (Norton, 2005).
