I recently had the pleasure of attending a Holiday Open House at Designers Only here in Kansas City. Steven Stolman, the president of Scalamandre was the featured guest, signing his new book, Scalamandre Haute Decor.
In his book, which was a year in the making, Mr. Stolman takes us through the history of Scalamandre. There is a multitude of founder Franco Scalamandre's correspondence saved in the company archives. It includes letters from the era's top designers and heads of major department stores.
