For over sixty years the firm designed and made textile furnishings for museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum, for historic houses such as Wilton, Monticello, and Winterthur, as well as for many private clients. This lecture will provide an introduction to LoNano’s work and document the firm’s impact on interior design for much of the twentieth century.
