Crescent City Cool

by Meryl Levin

New Orleans architect Lee Ledbetter filled an 1850’s living room with vintage 20th century classics for a bold and sophisticated look…The table and seating he selected are typical of the era, yet they compliment the much older structure – their small scale helps to emphasize the room’s dramatic height, while their squared-off shapes echo the space’s right angles and classical proportions.
