Garrison House

Scroll Icon

The Garrison house was designed by the late architect Edgar A. Tafel in 1948, whose mentor was Frank Lloyd Wright. The low slung house, with large panes of glass, stone walls, and sweeping views of the Hudson River, sits on 3.7 acres of land. The client, a retired doctor, collected a few good pieces - a serpentine sofa by Vladimir Kagan, tulip chairs by Erwine and Estelle Laverne, as well as art work by Robert Mangold and Joseph Zito. 2Michaels was hired to pull the interiors together. After their initial meeting, they bonded over their mutual love of the 1959 movie, North By Northwest, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 2Michaels developed a great back and forth dialogue with their client, all of them responding to furniture that were unique and slightly rustic. Among the carefully selected furniture were pieces designed by Axel Einar Hjorth, Borge Mogensen, and Pierre Chapo. Antique Swedish and Moroccan rugs from Doris Leslie Blau reflected the simple, pure beauty of the house.
