Decorators and furnishers, William Baumgarten & Company was operated as a tapestry-making and interior design enterprise in both New York and Chicago. Baumgarten himself, after a long association with Herter Brothers in New York, established the first tapestry looms in the United States in 1893. In the Philadelphia area, the Baumgarten company supplied tapestries and decorative painting for "Grey Towers," the William Welsh Harrison residence in Glenside, PA, designed by Horace Trumbauer.
