Betty Joel: glamour and innovation in 1930’s interior design Clive Stewart-Lockhart Wednesday 23 October 2019

Betty Joel, born Mary Stewart Lockhart, ran a furniture making and design business. At its peak, in the 1920’s and 30’s, Betty Joel Ltd employed 50 craftsmen and had showrooms in Knightsbridge.

With rare access to three surviving schemes, the style and glamour of 1930’s design is brought to life and retells the story of a determined woman in a world still run by men.
