Van Day Truex was an American interior designer and professor of design with a style that emphasized aesthetics over function. He was not interested in the mechanical process of materials, but rather in the visual representation. During a time when interior design was not as highly recognized, Truex gave a sense of quality and style that was driven by a motivated and controlled approach. Truex has been dubbed ‘the man who defined twentieth-century taste and style’ by biographer Adam Lewis. Others have called him the father of twentieth -century American design.
