What was Haines known for?

Haines’ style — known as Hollywood Regency and Maximalism — blends colors, textures, patterns and finishes with regard to 19th-century English Regency elements. Even though he was a successful film actor during the 1920s and 1930s, he later switched to interior design, and his client list included former colleagues such as Joan Crawford, Carole Lumbard and Jack and Ann Warner.
