Retro Martini Party – February 22, 2013

The 2013 Retro Martini Party was held at the internationally-famous Abernathy House. Designed by midcentury architect William F. Cody for millionaire socialite James Logan Abernathy in 1962, the pavilion-style house was notably featured in both the Dec/Jan 2011/2012 issue of Australia's Belle magazine and the May 2012 issue of French Architectural Digest. More than 250 partygoers enjoyed the home's stunning interior which is liberally appointed with rare midcentury furniture and decorative arts by a host of important French and American craftsmen and designers.
