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. At only three inches, these elegant but sturdy columns Stern designed for Swid Powell are an expression of his expansive architecture that one can enjoy with considerably less space or money.
