A VISIT TO THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM, PART 2 – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I recently went to the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum in New York City with my daughter. She’s studying interior design so we focused on furniture and home decor through the centuries.

Here are some more photos of the wonderful pieces we saw.

I love the different tones of wood on this hutch
A wonderful old Grandfather Clock
Unusual piece with two-toned wood and an odd-shaped base
A lovely desk/dressing table
The beautiful wood pattern on this dining room storage unit
17th or 18th century harpsichord

Chairs are my favorite furniture item. Here are a few from American history

My favorite chair. Beautiful lines and shapes.
Intricate and delicate wood inlay work
