Glass House Wire

Lucky duck Times reporter Guy Trebay emulates a rich Neiman Marcus shopper and spends a night at the Philip Johnson-designed Glass House in New Canaan, Conn., only to live to tell about it in today's paper. "I tried out the bed, a firm horsehair-stuffed mattress from the venerable Charles H. Beckley Inc., and found it comfortable, if just that much too narrow to be properly shared," he writes, adding, "Finally, after a glass of wine, I submitted to the logic and will of the transparent structure and lay in semidarkness, staring out into the silhouetted traceries of the winter-bare trees."
