I was fortunate to spend a couple of nights at the R.J. Reynolds Mansion on Sapelo Island during a recent cycling tour with the Coastal Georgia Greenway Organization.
I was struck by some of the beautifully crafted architectural details and fretwork seen in some of the doors used throughout the home in particular.
Some of these very same patterns that were being used in this mansion’s furnishings back in the 18th century are showing up in today’s current interior design trends. Notice the honeycomb(or hexagonal) pattern shown in a piece seen at the High Point Furnishings Market pictured here alongside the similar design used in some of the doors at Reynolds Mansion.
I was also surprised to find the circa 17th century console table in the library of the mansion right before seeing a very similarly styled piece at a vendor show room just this past week.
This is a great example of how history does, in fact, repeat itself. Especially when it comes to interior design!
Love Where You Live!
