Ode to Robert Isabell by the Novogratzes

On January 27, 2011, the JOHNHOUSHMAND team attended the ODE TO ROBERT ISABELL party hosted by Cortney and Bob Novogratz of Sixx Design. A world renowned floral designer and events planner who gave Studio 54 its sparkle quite literally one New Year’s Eve, installing 5″ of glitter on its floors, Robert Isabell passed away in the summer of 2009. The contents of this historic West Village home were auctioned off by Sotheby’s in December 2009, and the house was put on the market.

A year and a half later, the Novogratzes presented their ODE TO ROBERT ISABELL party. The decor was as inspired and quirky as the home itself, with small clear chandeliers, bright chunky chairs, glass tables with chrome legs and artificial rose garlands hanging from the ceiling. In attendance were John Houshmand, glitter artist Camomile Hixon (whose piece “Pleasure Dome” sparkled above the crowd), and JH2 One Tree Home partner Jack Donenfeld.

Also present at the event was JOHNHOUSHMAND‘s No. 0103.3 Cast Aluminum Table, from which cocktails and wine flowed. The subtle gleam from the cast grain added another source of shine to the evening, complementing the mod decor, while the rich black walnut legs harked back to Robert Isabell’s Mid-Century and Minimalist art and interior collection. A great time was had by all!
