NYC - Part VIII - The Met

The Met is overwhelming.  There is so much to see and each room opens up into the next in the fashion of a labyrinth.

I totally geeked out looking at all the furniture.  I was reading all about the in-lay, pietre dure, japanning and ogling the Duncan Fife exhibits. 

 They have a wonderful exhibition which is an actual re-creation of the living room from Northome by Frank Lloyd Wright.  Eveyone that walked in just stood in absolute silence taking it all in.  It was such a gorgeous space.

Off to one side in the archives, there was a workbench, tools and templates from the Tiffany studio.  There was also piece after piece of Tiffany glass throughout the American Wing.

A couple of pieces from the modern furniture room.
