9 Posh Ways To Channel Your Inner Traditionalist



One of the surviving relics of decadent early-20th-century New York is linked to none other than Gilded Age banker J.P. Morgan.

Three levels of books soar upward of 30 feet to a ceiling of ornate lunettes and spandrels depicting signs of the zodiac and famous contributors to the arts and sciences, cementing itself as an impressive example of American Renaissance style. Here, we explore the latest market finds that echo the space’s traditional vibe.
