Prepare to laugh your masks off at The Community House’s annual revue––HINSDALE: UNMASKED. The Community House Players bring their entertaining style and humor to the stage and poke fun at the village we call home in the most endearing and inappropriate ways. The two-hour evening performances by legendary local talent offer lighthearted lampooning and will be performed on the newly dedicated Dick Johnson Memorial Stage, in honor of Johnson, the founder of The Community House Players and The Community Revue. Executive Director Dan Janowick says, “Dick was a founding member of The Community House Players and he appeared in every show since the very beginning. While his presence, talent, and booming voice are truly missed, the show must go on, and we know Dick would be proud of the great work being done on his stage!” To join the laughter, visit thecommunityhouse.org/communityrevue22.
Over the course of his 50-year career, Jacques Grange has designed homes for the world’s most respected collectors, artists, designers, and tastemakers, including Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, François Pinault, Valentino, Stavros Niarchos, Aerin Lauder, and HRH The Princess of Hanover. His classical training at Paris’s École Boulle and École Camondo, his early experience with the French design legend Henri Samuel, and his passion for contemporary art have resulted in a uniquely discerning approach to interior design. Grange’s seemingly natural, “non-designed” aesthetic is revealed through his unusual way of grouping objects, and an unparalleled sense of style and attention to detail. The book illustrates Grange’s wide-ranging inspirations and exquisite taste through 31 new residential projects in Europe and America, from a luxury hôtel particulier in Paris to a chic beachside cabana in Comporta, Portugal, and a midcentury-modern house in Los Angeles. Texts and interviews by Parisian gallerist Pierre Passebon delineate Grange’s approach to design and decoration. Previously unpublished photography by François Halard captures these singular projects with profound sensibility.
