The stunning details of the Former Princeton Club include slate roofing, multiple fireplaces with elaborate tile fireplace surrounds featuring Moravian tile and decorative and figural tiles, highly decorative cast iron firebacks, ornately carved hardwood mantels (some hardwood mantels are original Furness designs), moldings, archways, staircase balusters (Furness-designed and otherwise) in various forms on the same staircase, gorgeous leaded glass windows and leaded glass skylights in various designs (including original Princeton Club emblems), Furness-designed iron work with a mix of industrial and floral motifs on the front staircase, hardwood and tile flooring (some Moravian), elaborate wainscoting, grand bay windows and light everywhere----from the 182 feet of window walls and multiple skylights in this corner property. Paint colors in the office areas were researched and taken from other Furness-designed buildings (e.g. Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts). Lighting is period-appropriate, new fixtures. Floors have been restored in heart pine. The building has already been suggested as a future nominee for a national historic preservation awards.
