John,
I just wanted to chime in on this.
I did 2 loans for the owner of Christmas house back in 2006 & 2007. I have interior shots i took of many details then as well. The room north of dining room is paneled with paneled dark wood to memory a walnut. The doors and rooms panels reminded me of Charnley House details. The dining room is to the south of it facing park to south. The spindles and other interior elements in sitting room area also intrigued me at that time as well. It appears to be Corwins work mostly inside & out but some of it does resemble FLLWs details. There are 2 other Corwins in area most dont know of as well that i documented inside & out. Was also in a 3rd Corwin home near and its interior also both of them on it. Its part of what Richard & I were looking at. I cant say much more but we found quite a lot of their collaborative efforts in several locations and states.
