New Horizons: Opening of Hallam+Bruner in Hudson

 Scott Baldinger reports from Hudson.
Landscape designer and professor David Dew Bruner and realtor/antiques dealer Jonathan Hallam, partners in life, kept separate identities as antiques, art, and design retailers on Hudson’s Warren Street. Bruner had his eponymous store on the bustling 600 block and Hallam’s was formerly in the relatively quiet 400 one. They decided to join forces a bit off the beaten path, way up on Columbia Street (across from Columbia Memorial Hospital) in the carriage house of a vacant 1910 Beaux Arts Victorian mansion, rumored to have once been built for an Astor and last used as a funeral parlor. The newly opened Hallam+Bruner is located in a stunning space, and opening night on Saturday, February 16, brought a crowd as lofty as the wooden rafters dramatically framing the antiques and art on view (drawings by Bruner, sculpture by Ben Bishop). At left: guests Logan Goodman, renown stage and screen actor David Strathairn, and jewelry artist Gabrielle Kiss
