Our Shop is beautifully situated in the 1810 House in Warwick, NY. The building, sitting in the original green of the Old School Baptist Meeting House, was donated to the Warwick Historical Society in 1973. There is a formal Herb Garden in the back of the house, surrounded by English boxwood. Altogether the green, church, garden and 1810 House provide a beautiful vista that represents life in the 19th century.
Architecturally the house has its roots in Connecticut design, which is based on the early English yeoman’s cottage. You enter into a center hall which is now a charming small picture gallery, featuring works by local artist William Bartsch. Directly to the right, in all its Hermes box orange splendor is the parlor dressed in 18th and 19th century mahogany and walnut furniture, gilt mirrors, crystal chandeliers and interesting small decorative items.
Opposite the front hall, is our workroom. It is a bright, airy space with shelves filled with fine samples of fabrics, carpets and wallpaper. A pleasant room with a Georgian mantle and upholstered walls, full of sturdy chairs and big tables so that our clients, at their leisure, can choose from the hundreds of interesting samples personally chosen by us.
The Garden Room with its green and white trellis wallpaper, architectural columns and green painted floor is a stunning backdrop for a excellent selection of garden decor including french bistro tables, chairs and urns. This room opens directly on to the Terrace where you’ll find more garden decor and a selection of plants.
