I received an invitation from designer Gary Henderson, and his long term partner in life turned business partner, Tony Fields, to join a small gathering in their Capitol Hill home. Gary invited a few people from the design industry to welcome the return of his friend Jan Fisher who is visiting from Australia. Gary is a truly gifted designer. Everything he touches becomes elegant, restrained, paired down, immaculate, tailored and detailed with materials sourced from things natural. He is one of the most generous people I know, whose dry wit will have you rolling with laughter in short order. I'm grateful for my special and longstanding friendship with both Gary and Tony.
From his website: Gary began his career working with internationally recognized trendsetter - interior designer Tonny Foy in his Fort Worth Studio. He was greatly influenced by the frequent visitors to the Foy Studio including Benjamin Baldwin, Ward Bennett and Joe D'Urso. This was followed by extensive corporate design work with the national interior design firms of Richmond Marsh Manoff and Griswold Heckell and Kelly. Later relocating to Seattle, he joined Callison Architects.
