FR Gillette @ 217 Warren Street

FR GILLETTE was born in Rome NY, where as a boy he imagined restoring run down homes to their beautiful former selves and by high school planned to be an interior designer. A twist of fate thrust him into the fashion world and he found himself in Manhattan working as a hair & make-up artist for Vogue magazine with the leading fashion photographers of the time. Fast forward three decades to 2000 when he felt it was again time for a career change and interior design seemed the natural choice. Gillette’s first commission was a renovation and furnishing of a two bedroom co-op apartment, which led to all manner of residential and commercial projects. In 2013 he relocated his design firm to Hudson NY where he now lives and works in a 3000 sq.ft. home, office and gallery showroom. Gillette’s successes are fueled by his ability to see beyond what is to what could be and his understanding of space, use of color and curatorial skills stem from a lifetime in the visual arts.

While wandering through the historic Oliver Bronson House, visitors will experience the juxtaposition between the architectural remnants of the historic home and the furniture, art and decorative wares available from Hudson antique dealers, art galleries and modern home furnishing stores.

The Bronson House was first built as a Federal-style residence for Samuel Plumb in 1812. The house and grounds were reinvented by architect Alexander Jackson Davis into a fully realized Romantic-Picturesque estate for Dr. Oliver Bronson and his family in two successive remodeling campaigns dating to 1839 and 1849. The house is the earliest extant design by Davis in the “bracketed mode,” and its dramatic setting framed by the Catskill mountains and the Hudson River fully expressed the romantic vision of the Hudson River School painters Thomas Cole and Frederic Church, who owned villas nearby.

The estate was absorbed into the grounds of a NYS penal institution and used for many years as the superintendent’s house. The house was abandoned in the early 1970s and suffered many years of unchecked neglect. Beginning in 1997, Historic Hudson began a sustained program of advocacy for the house leading to the property’s designation as a National Historic Landmark in 2003 and the acquisition of the house and a small portion of the grounds through a long-term lease with New York State in 2008.

Historic Hudson continues to work to preserve the Bronson House and half the proceeds from the Friday Night Cocktail Party will support this work.
