. . . DE GOURNAY SILK WALLS and Scalamandré velvet sofas and Maison Baguès crystal sconces, gilded mirrors and chandeliers, and custom canopy beds — this Ruthie Sommers designed townhouse in Chicago is as chic as France in the 20’s . . .
A proponent of old-fashioned decorating allied with strong personality and luscious hues, Sommers is known for rooms that are modern in spirit but have a sense of the past.
