New American Furniture: The Second Generation of Studio
New American Furniture: The Second Generation of Studio
"Several years ago, 26 prominent studio furniture-makers were asked to design works of furniture based on period pieces in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The result is an explosion of form and fantasy in which past and present are mergedUa celebration of the continued existence of small-scale furniture making in the midst of mass production. Among the works discussed in this lavishly illustrated book are pieces by Garry Knox Bennett, JohnCederquist, Kristina Madsen, Judy Kensley McKie, Michael Pierschalla, and Paul Sasso. In an insightful and detailed essay, author Edward Cooke Jr. contextualizes these works, outlining their complex relationship with American traditions of furniture design."

American Biscuit & Manufacturing Company
American Biscuit & Manufacturing Company
(1891) 222 E. Erie Street, Suite 300 The American Biscuit & Manufacturing Company building was erected in 1891, just one year prior to the Great Third Ward Fire. This cream city brick structure cost an estimated $68,000 to build. Romanesque Revival in style, it features four bays with round arches that extend to encompass three floors, as well includes as a corbelled brickwork cornice. The architectural firm of Crane & Barkhausen was responsible for its design; Crane alone designed the American Candy Company building, also on today’s tour. The predecessor of the American Biscuit & Mfg. Co., was the bakery business of Scottish immigrant Alexander Johnston, which was founded in 1847. After his sons joined the firm, it was named A.H. Johnston & Sons; it later changed to Johnston Bros., including Robert A. Johnston. In 1890, the firm was among forty Midwest bakeries that were acquired by American Biscuit, which had their headquarters in Chicago. In 1898, the company merged with the New York Biscuit and U.S. Biscuit companies to form the National Biscuit Company, which is known today as Nabisco. Johnston continued as manager of that plant until 1899, when he built an independent factory at Florida and Clinton streets to compete with his former firm. The Erie Street building produced Nabisco-brand items until the late 1940s, after which the building was used as a furniture and appliance warehouse, as well as offices. In circa 2004, the building was purchased by a Chicago firm who then took advantage of the tax credit rehabilitation program to rehab the building. Following conversion, the first commercial tenant was the Walker Group, which is located in Suite 300.
RI - Newport: Whitehorne House Museum
RI - Newport: Whitehorne House Museum
Built in 1811, the Whitehorne House Museum is a rare example of a Federal style mansion. It features an elegant hipped roof, classically inspired entry portico, and a formal garden. The interior is highlighted by a grand central hallway, hand carved details, and a significant collection of early American furniture. Samuel Whitehorne Jr. (1779-1844) made a fortune in Newport through a variety of commercial enterprises, including rum distilling, banking, shipping, and possibly slave trading. With the town's economy in shambles after the American Revolution, Whitehorne was one of the Newport's last great merchant princes. Built on Thames St. proudly facing the water, Whitehorne's house was to be a symbol of his prosperity. Unfortunately, after two of his ships were lost at sea, he went bankrupt. Sold at auction, his house was converted to shops and apartments and gradually deteriorated until it was purchased and restored by the Newport Restoration Foundation in 1969.
