Richard Dorman House Sherman Oaks

Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Artisseur’s original Richard Dorman FAIA mid-century residence with Maite as she traces the rise of entertaining in 1950’s America, and how modern architecture, furniture and objects played a role in home cocktail parties. Prepare hors d’oeuvres and libations that would have made Frank, Dean and Sammy proud, then enjoy the party on the spectacular deck overlooking the city to tunes by old blue eyes.

Limited capacity (14). Couples and singles are welcome. Must be 21 years of age and provide valid driver’s license upon arrival. Purchase as a single salon or “Art/Arch Bundle 1″ – this one and The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book on 10/20.
