Our classic designs are associated with the traditional architecture of grand homes and palaces. Characterized by geometric and symmetrical shapes, classic designs tend to be highly structured with formal topiary, or have a relaxed formality interspersed with loose arrangements in beautiful plant containers.
Gatsby was astonishing. He even arranged to see to it that the book about him was regarded as a novel, fiction, as though he didn’t exist. Even Fitzgerald, by the time he was through writing it, believed he’d dreamed the whole thing up. Some knew the truth all along, of course; knew everything except the source of all that money. (Even by today’s standards, when millions mean nothing, only billions matter, Gatsby was incomprehensibly rich.) When Gatsby walked into a room, the first place he walked up to was the balcony glass door, opened it, paused and then stepped out, onto the beautiful balcony space to breathe in the fresh air. Even the way he did it made people talk. And probably will still make them talk. Gatsby’s balcony, of the same character as the Classic style, was like nothing else. (Gatsby had his balconies made in Italy, and shipped to his homes for assembly and installation by his highly skilled craftsmen.) The materials we have used in our uncompromising replica of Gatsby’s balcony are so refined that even a person who notices nothing cannot help but to notice something. Gatsby, of course, could afford to have a classic balcony for every room in his grand homes; just imagine. Never mind. All that matters is that you have one, just one. A piece of how things were and how they can be.
