American designer primarily known for residential interior design work for clients such as Brooke Astor, Estee Lauder, Mike Wallace, Saul Steinberg, H. John Heinz III, Lincoln Kirstein, as well as three U.S. presidents. In 1986 he was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, and in 2010 Architectural Digest named him one of the world's top 20 designers of all time. In addition to interior design commissions, Hampton licensed his designs in fabrics, trimmings, and furniture. His weekly columns for House & Garden were later compiled in the book Mark Hampton on Decorating. He died on 23 July 1998, age 58, in New York City.
