Gorgeous statement pieces all over this glamorous salon, or living room by designer Lynne Scalo. A stunning Klismos chair in brass and woven saddle leather. A custom Chesterfield-inspired (on steroids!) sofa, a pair of cocktail tables by Oly Studio in complementing aluminum and shell finishes, along with a silver-splashed cowhide rug, a pair of Ruhlmann Sconces.
Workers restoring former Russian mansion find massive treasure hoard wrapped in newspaper from 1917
Workers restoring former Russian mansion find massive treasure hoard wrapped in newspaper from 1917. Over 1,000 pieces of jewelry found in storage space between two floors. Trove includes silver service sets stamped with noble family's name. Row develops as various parties lay claim to the treasure. Too early to put estimate on value of the St Petersburg hoard.
