Dorothy Draper was a pioneer in interior design, dominating the field, not only in New York but nationally, from 1925 to 1960 when she was named the most influential tastemaker in America. That she was a woman makes her achievements all the more remarkable, succeeding at a time when she had few counterparts in the business world.
