Olson T he following night — the finale for Texas Design Week Houston — design fans who weren't already smitten with the charming and immensely talented Jean-Louis Deniot soon became disciples as the modern master of French interiors shared insights about his craft to a standing-room-only crowd. Sponsored by New Orleans Auction Galleries and owner Susan Sarofim, it was a full-circle experience with the event hosted at The Susan and Fayez Sarofim House on River Oaks Boulevard. The cocktail fête, book signing, and salon talk, moderated by textile designer and interiors author Carl Dellatore, was held in the great room in the midst of John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Donald Sultan, and Robert Rauschenberg paintings, overlooking the gardens and pool with tables set for an al fresco Southern supper from City Kitchen. The architect/interior designer with movie-star good looks told his admirers, "I never get the impression that I am working. It's a passion. I didn't know someone could pay me to have fun." That fun has extended across the continents with his work recorded in his book, Jean-Louis Deniot: Interiors (Rizzoli), which was a sellout that evening. By Shelby Hodge. Photography Emile C. Browne. MASTERMINDS AT JEAN-LOUIS DENIOT: Lori Sarofim, Cornelia and Meredith Long, Deniot's great friend Becca Cason Thrash and husband John Thrash, Dean Rhys-Morgan, Suzanne Duin, Dennis Brackeen, Jenna McPhail, Ben Johnston, Sara Dodd, Ann Wolf, Carol Isaak Barden, LeTricia Wilbanks, Ruth and Neill Davis, AD PRO's Katy B.
