Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Thanks for your question. Yes the cushions are attached to the bench. I don't know how they were exactly attached though. We had this custom built.

Why is the table so far from the seats? - the table looks too small for that space because somone would have to stretch far to eat their food

What stain did you use on the trim and floor? - I like the color combination, what type of wood, stain, and finish did you use for the trim and the flooring? Thanks!

This project was a restoration, in order to match existing most products and paints were custom. The hardwood floor was an existing white oak floor that we patch/matched in the areas needed. The stain/finish is a custom mix in order to match the existing. Same goes for all the trim in the kitchen, it’s white oak trim with a custom stain/finish to match.

Thanks for your question! The cushions were custom made by a local fabricator. The leather was ordered from Spinneybeck.

Is the over the table light fixture an antique Dutch, or Flemish chandelier ?

Yes, the chandelier is a Flemish Williamsburg.
