“A list of the prominent midcentury interior designers inspired by George Stacey reads like a who’s-who of the profession: Billy Baldwin, Sister Parish, Michael Taylor and Mario Buatta all reflected Stacey’s thoroughly modern take on mixing French furniture and light, art deco lined rooms in their own work.
