A Visit To Garrison, New York

Last Saturday, I took a drive along the Hudson River to scenic Garrison, New York.  The first stop when we arrived in Garrison was to see Chip Allemann, the General Manager of The Garrison.  Chip is the partner of John Danzer, the well-known outdoor furniture designer of Munder Skiles.  John, a passionate researcher and collector who has always had a keen interest in the field of garden furniture, started Munder-Skiles in 1992 to produce quality pieces using his artisan-like standards of comfort, craft, and proportion.  I enjoyed my visit to his showroom and store.
