When enormously creative people find their raison d’être, magic can happen. We found
five such individuals working here in New England, perfecting and pushing the limits
of their craft. Among them they have resurrected a piece of the past, turned a back lot
into an exotic Eden, lit up a city, and created works of extraordinary art. They have us
under their spell.
when david berman first moved into his
1910 Queen Anne Shingle-Style house in
Plymouth, Massachusetts, he worked
with J.R. Burrows & Company of
Rockland, Massachusetts, to reproduce
C. F. A Voysey’s “The Stag” wallpaper,
which graces his front hallway. Berman
(facing page), who also built the tall
case clock, now reproduces Voysey papers
and textiles in his in-house studio.
