There are many things to say about the George D. Sturges Residence, and over the past few months—speaking with collectors, design lovers, and the media as we prepare for our February 21st sale—I’ve said a lot. But here I want to describe perhaps the most important aspect of the Sturges Residence: its atmosphere; the ambiance—what it is that gives the house its special sense of place. The feeling of being inside the Sturges Residence is a little hard to convey. It’s warm; it’s embracing. Inside the dark, wood-paneled rooms with logs crackling in the big brick fireplace, you experience a sense of serenity and security. You feel instantly at home.
