Juan Pablo Molyneux at Home Chez MCNY

Co-sponsored by The Artisans Guild of America

Presentation/Reception with book signing to follow!

Juan Pablo Molyneux’s new book published by Assouline, At Home, explores the interior designer’s three homes in New York and France - an Upper East Side town house, a hôtel particulier in Paris, and a 12th-century castle. The internationally-acclaimed designer interprets traditional artisan craftsmanship through a contemporary lens. Molyneux collaborates with master artisans to create lacquerwork, decorative painting, woodwork, and embroidered drapery and upholstery evoking a rich historical atmosphere. Join us for a conversation and look behind the scenes with the designer. Elizabeth Graziolo, AIA, Partner at Peter Pennoyer Architects, will join Molyneux following his presentation for a conversation.

Ricard De La Rosa, founder and owner of ProPiano, the nation's leading supplier of concert instruments and a supporter of concert artists, will provide observations and anecdotes from his 30 years of experience working with the world's greatest musicians:  including Andre Watts, Emanuel Ax, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock and James Levine.  Then delight in musical interludes by noted pianist Henry Wong Do...playing on a Steinway.

The evening will benefit The Artisan's Guild of America (AGA) apprenticeship and educational programs, as well as support the preservation and restoration of the Steinway Mansion.  The Friends of Steinway Mansion is currently raising funds to purchase and preserve the Steinway Mansion.
