Noted artist, Louis Comfort Tiffany, made his home in Laurel Hollow, Long Island, New York. The manor, appropriately named Laurelton Hall, contained 65 rooms on 600 acres of land. Tiffany designed the home in the Art Nouveau style with a combination of Islamic motifs connected to nature. Notable works by Tiffany were on display in the home, which was also the location of the Tiffany Art Foundation at which artists trained.

The Tiffany Chapel, constructed for the 1893 Columbian Exposition, was also kept on the property in a separate gallery. Unfortunately, when Louis Comfort Tiffany died, Laurelton Hall fell into disrepair and was sold in 1949. It burned down in 1957. Some of the magnificent Tiffany windows and architectural pieces were salvaged and are now housed in the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art.
