A Historical Hudson, NY, Home Reimagined (European Antiques Included)


A Historical Hudson, NY, Home Reimagined (European Antiques Included)

July 29, 2016

Jocelyn Sinauer, the owner of antiques shop The Red Chair in Hudson, New York, (known for its mix of 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century finds), has created a light-filled oasis in an 1860s whaling house. Did we mention she lives above the shop? Her apartment, which is situated on the three floors above her antiques store, is outfitted with furniture and accessories she has collected during her travels to France, Sweden, and beyond. Join us for a tour.

Above: Originally built as a placeholder, the open shelving is made from marble slabs (the result ultimately won Sinauer over, trumping her plans for cabinets).
