The Modern Traditionalist architect, Robert A.M. Stern, is well known for his muscular take on classic American architectural idioms. Think steroidal new “pre-war” towers for billionaires in Manhattan or 10,000 square foot shingled “cottages” in the Hamptons. These sturdy columns Stern designed for Swid Powell in 1984 are the perfect tabletop expression of his expansive architecture that one can enjoy with. They’re weight and marks on the bottom identify these as early production pieces.
