Creator (Role)

Ernest LoNano Interiors (Artist)
The interior design firm of Ernest Lo Nano manufactured many textile furnishings (curtains, upholstery, bed hangings, etc.) for Henry Francis du Pont between 1929 and 1958. Mr. du Pont mainly worked with Ernest S. Lo Nano Jr (1901 to 1958), who was proprietor of the shop from 1935-1958. Mr.du Pont was quite clear that Lo Nano did not act as the interior designer at Winterthur. Rather, Lo Nano was the curtain maker and upholsterer. Jeni Sandberg has conducted much of the primary research on Lo Nano. See the manuscripts, notes in file "Lo Nano" in textile curator's office.
