Outstanding Projects Completed
Cypress Pond Plantation - GeorgiaCypress Pond is a favorite of the Jackson’s who were chosen to serve as consultants and buyers for the restoration project of the 1851 plantation house. We were there from beginning to end helping with the plans, purchasing the contents architectural elements and assembling everything in the finished home. The furniture, art, china, glass, crystal and silver were all period, along with the marble mantels, Victorian lighting and every other element in the home.It is something they are immensely proud of.
Rosedale Mansion – Columbus, Mississippi
Another noteworthy project is 1856 Rosedale Mansion in Columbus, Mississippi.The famous Italianate home filled with period antique furnishings, lighting, and objects d’ art.Larry located and acquired the largest and most extensive collection of period furnishings by celebrated American craftsman John Henry Belter ever assembled in one location. Rosedale is privately owned, but is on tour at various times of the year.
