Russel Wright: An American Modern

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Wilmington-Stroop
Meeting Room
It was Middletown’s Russel Wright, not Martha Stewart, who was America’s first lifestyle guru. Wright dropped out of Princeton to create sets for stage plays. By the late 1920’s he was an industrial designer developing a distinctive style that was both modern and solidly American. His wife Mary, the marketing genius in the family, helped promote his “American Modern” line of furniture and then tableware which spawned an array of imitators in mid-century America. In 1950 they published their Guide to Easier Living, outlining a casual new lifestyle approach to decorating and entertaining. After Mary’s untimely death, Russel focused his talents on Dragon Rock, his unique home and studio retreat. Historian Mike Williams presents a talk on the career of this trend-setting Buckeye.
