Back in the late 1980s, Shearson-Lehman built Saddle Ridge as a private corporate retreat, and in the process, hired Naomi Leff, Ralph Lauren’s legendary interior designer, to create the lobby, lounge, and dining room, among other spaces. Leff was directed to gather the finest collection of Western and Native American artifacts she could find, with money being no object. The result, in addition to spectacular post and beam architecture and what looks like a million board feet of hand-rubbed butternut woodwork, the treasures inside includes Buffalo Bill’s writing desk, General Custer’s hat and canteen, assorted photos by Edward Curtis, and enough other artifacts to make any museum envious. The front desk hands out a three-page tour guide to the collection. Oh, and the steaks in the dining room are pretty good, too.
