Jeffrey Steiner, who is the chairman and CEO of the Fairchild Corporation, bought The Hut in 1998, and Christopher Hobbs, the London-based English antiques dealer, tapped the entirety of his interior design talent to fill the enormous space with exceptional furniture and collectibles.
On a macro level, The Hut can be described as a series of pavilions joined together by transitional rooms.
The most obvious application of this transitional flow can be found moving from the living room to the dining room where we experience cozy countryside feel before entering a dining room filled with exceptional antique furniture and original paintings. In fact, the decoration follows the spirit of the architecture which is itself a mix of several motifs as well as a trip through the centuries. From the collection of orientalist drawings to the nineteenth century Barocco mirror, guests are endlessly surprised to discover new details each time they visit: One time you notice the sculpture of Rodin sleeping behind a door, the next visit you discover a small statue next to the fountain, which seems to be alive.
