Meditation on Neoclassicism

Meditation on Neoclassicism

Our favorite part of the job: rearranging furniture.

We started with this pair of armchairs attributed to Wilhelm Schmidt, a petrified wood log, carved wood gilt plaster mirror, and an armload of eucalyptus…

This was better: 19th century folding iron daybed, Louis XVI fauteuil, Paul McCobb travertine-topped coffee table, 19th century Italian writing table, velvet chauffeuse…

On the wall, the first five panels of one of the earliest series of French scenic wallpaper by Joseph Dufour and Company.

In another corner, a Robsjohn-Gibbings side chair, an olive wood side table, another wallpaper scene, mounted on a folding screen, and an Anatolian Tulu rug.
