For the lobby of his new corporate headquarters, Cyrus Curtis in 1916 commissioned an enormous 15 by 49 feet glass mosaic, called The Dream Garden. Designed by artist Maxfield Parrish and executed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Tiffany Studios from more than 100,000 pieces of Favrile glass, Dream Garden has been called "one of the major artistic collaborations in early 20th Century America."
