Event description
Learn how the earliest roots of American Interior Design began right here in New England.

About this Event

As we move into the second century of the design profession, Boston Designer Michael Carter reminds us that the genesis of American Interior Design as we know it today has its earliest roots right here in New England.

Carter will take us back to the late 19th Century when interior design as a profession was emerging and Boston was the epicenter. He will take us behind the scenes to explore two critical figures who not only made their mark here, they left their mark permanently in the form of their own homes, completely intact today, now part of the collection of historic structures under the care of Historic New England. Ogden Codman’s family estate, The Grange, and Henry Davis Sleeper’s Beauport are completely unique as living monuments to the careers of these two highly important and often overlooked interior designers.
