William “Billy” Haines

William “Billy” Haines

The number-one box office star of 1930, William “Billy” Haines (1900 – 1973) went on to become one of the top designers and interior decorators of the Hollywood Regency era.

Working closely with architects including James E. Dolena, Roland E. Coate and A. Quincy Jones, Haines transformed the look of Hollywood. His sophisticated emphasis on balance between formal and casual and style and substance marked a departure from a previous design ethos that focused on flamboyance and opulence. Haines created sleek, timeless pieces that were the best of both form and function.
