Astor Courts, a 15,000 square foot estate in Rhinebeck, NY with very classical architectural lines. Some of the pictures remind me of Robert Adam’s classic style and use of marble, classic columns, and marble tiled flooring.

House Beautiful Klismos Chairs

House Beautiful published an interesting article on the famous Klismos original and the many reproductions that followed it.

I think everyone who has a classical eye, is loving the fact that the Klismos chair is being reproduced by more manufacturing companies.  Restoration Hardware produced a beautiful set of patio furniture showcasing the classical design several seasons ago.

The Klismos chair peaked around 400 B.C., but was discovered again as everything turned classical in the 18th century.  At this time, Napoleon’s Egyptian expedition of 1798 started a movement to embracing the Egyptian culture.  In addition the excavations of Pompei, also turned an eye to the classical architecture and design.

Some chairs have vertical or horizontal back splats and some have none.  This classic design has been adapted in number of ways, including the construction, the materials and form.

Greek Revival Bartow-Pell Mansion’s Empire Furnishings

Bartow-Pell Mansion

A triumph of American spirit and creativity, the Bartow-Pell Mansion is one of the best preserved Greek Revival structures in America. It remains a country estate; open to the public, complete with surrounding parklands and gardens, which enhance the pleasures of the visitors’ experience.

Influenced by Minard Lafever (1797-1854), one of the most talented American designers of his time (he published three books of architecture, The Young Builder’s General Instructor, 1829; The Modern Builder’s Guide, 1833; and The Beauties of Modern Architecture, 1835.), the house is characterized by bold modifications of the classical Greek precedent.
