Inside Scoop

Murphy insisted that everything he brought inside had a story to tell, much like the house itself. The dining room table, for example, was born when a woodworker friend propped an old sewing table up on hairpin legs; the cheerful red rotary wall phone once made its television debut as a prop on the set of CSI; the rope railing was constructed from old parachuting lines employed by the U.S. Air Force; the stools in the kitchen were salvaged from a defunct diner in New York’s Bowery district.
