Recognized by the Oklahoma Historical Society, Dresser Mansion is carrying on the tradition of it's original purpose by hosting lavish parties for the Tulsa community.
The Dresser Mansion was built in 1919 for Carl and Pauline Dresser. Albert Joseph Bodker, architect of New York's first Waldorf Astoria, was commissioned to design the Dresser home in the Italian Renaissance style. At the same time Carl and Pauline hired the interior-design firm, Charles of London, to decorate their new home. During construction, the couple traveled Europe collecting an important collection of antique furniture, art, tapestries, silver and rugs for their new home.Today, the Dresser mansion is virtually unchanged from the early days. Much of the woodwork, including beamed and coffered ceilings, is made from trees felled with special permission from the private forest of King George V. finished by Italian artisans to resemble unfilled travertine marble. Floors throughout are made from Tennessee oak, while the sun room, breakfast room and library are paved with colorful, handmade Italian tiles. Large, cast stone fireplace mantels, along with hand wrought iron railings, and leaded glass windows found in Austria contribute to an opulent, yet intimate interior.
