If Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler say so...

Leopard People, 1966
Columbia Steps, 2003
At the Funeral of Martin Luther King Jr., 1968
Bryant Park, 2002
Repairing the Bells of Potsdam, Germany, 1930

The New York Times asked 5 top interior designers: Vicente Wolf, Thom Filicia, Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, and Laura Kirar to choose 10 photos from their archives. The result? A smashingly curated 50 piece art collection that the style gods of the industry have basically anointed with holy water. We have their blessing, now if only I could get one of the 5 lovelies to come over...

Can you pair the photo with the designer?

I love that Bryant Park picture - so cool.

P.S. I wish I was jumping on a plane headed to NYC for the next RUE party, but alas, I'm not this time. Have a blast - I'll be there in spirit!

The two black & white images are so inspiring. First image definitely screamed Jonathan Adler more so then the others!

The Bryant Park photo is absolutely perfect! It makes me want to run home to NYC and lie in the grass, frostbite or no frostbite.

The leopards have got to be Jonathan Adler. I'd put money on it.

Roxy that first one with the leopard people is so fabulous. I wish I could get that baby up on the wall in my living room...might scare off the visitors, but I'd sure have fun looking at it!
