Living room in 1911 home in Boston, MA

By Prudence Hutt

Living room in our new 1911 home in Boston MA

Super charming living room has that historic colonial America vibe expected from the area.

The house is a Victorian Gambrel, with pillars and box-beam ceilings.

Most of the furniture has been collected from estate sales and digging through antique warehouses in the New England area. Some of the pieces are 140+ years old (the barrister’s case and the prints on the wall).

Pulaski Mills is a great place to spend a Saturday afternoon. It has Lots of great stuff. Check out Antique Classics. There are a bunch of shops in the Rhode Island area too but you are likely to get better prices north of the city NH/Vermont included.

Go to Brimfield Antique Fair. It’s three times a year and definitely worth checking out. Largest of it’s kind in the states.


The rug is 10×14. The polypropylene is easy to vacuum and take care of.

The chair is called Mr. Chair, which was produced locally in Lawrence, MA by Plycraft. This chair was designed by George Mulhauser (who was an understudy of George Nelson and designed the coconut chair with him).

Card catalog drawer

The card catalog drawers, map, library, specimen are perfectly bold statement pieces. There is a small one on our end table by the couch.
