Robert AM Stern, the Modern Traditionalist architect, 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. At a little more than a half a foot, this sturdy fluted column, designed for Swid Powell in the mid-1980s, is the perfect tabletop expression of his expansive architecture that one can enjoy with considerably less space or money.
