Architect Ernesto Buch worked with de la Renta to create a magnificent room that functions as a living space, library, and bedroom. The mantel is the model for one installed at Houghton, and the William Kent table to its left was found in London. The Louis Seize chairs in the foreground and the Kentian banquette were in Annette de la Renta's former country house. "A house in the country is the work of a lifetime" says Oscar de la Renta. "You see the evolution of your own life in a way"
