Originally the bedroom of eldest son Edgar Stern Jr., this room now displays information about the creation of Longue Vue.
The George Washington memorial mantel carved by Robert Wellford of Philadelphia is one of only four known examples. The Times-Picayune Loving Cups awarded to Edgar and Edith Stern for their civic endeavors flank the mantel.
Continuing the decorative floral elements seen throughout Longue Vue, this room has “Roses and Ribbons” chintz and a portion of the collection of dollhouse china on view.
Mr. Stern's Dressing Room and Bath
This room with radio black marble floors, “faux marbre” wallpaper, mirror, glass, and chrome reflects the influence of the Style Moderne.
Mrs. Stern's Dressing Room and Bath
Chinese hand-painted wallpaper and French millefiore glass doorknobs soften the Style Moderne design of this chrome and mirror dressing and bathroom.
Sleeping porches are most commonly used in homes without air-conditioning. This one had three Murphy beds suitable for napping.
Oak paneling of the French Regency period was adapted for this room by turning casement windows into display cabinets for the collection of pastille burners, nightlights, money banks, and flat-backed mantel decorations.
This reception hall has a domed skylight that sets off the scenic 19th c. wallpaper, “Les Vues de Lyon.” Mirrored doors at either end lend spaciousness to the room and close off the bedroom wings.
Upstairs Dressing Room
This powder room for Drawing Room guests is one of ten bathrooms in the house.
Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Closed on Monday.
