He’s been a top broker with Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty for 15 years, boasting listings in contemporary designs, mid-century masterpieces and architectural gems. His sophisticated style and knowledge is evident in his following on social media and on his blog, Saint Louis Style, which features all things real estate, travel, food and of course St. Louis. One of the most interesting facts about Ted Wight is that not only does he live in an original Bernoudy home, it is the one the apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright designed for himself. Wight purchased it from his mother who had bought it from the Bernoudy estate. In his spare time, Ted serves on boards and committees of various arts organizations, he likes to garden and he enjoys cooking. We’re putting in an order for number seven on his “can’t live without” list.
1) “My Paul McCobb cocktail table that designer David Deatherage found in Pittsburgh.”
2) “The painting of our family farm in Pike County I commissioned Bryan Haynes to complete.” Ted likes to garden when he visits on weekends.
3) “Graeters raspberry dark chocolate chip ice cream.” It’s originally made in Cleveland but available in many grocery stores around St. Louis.
4) Steamed artichokes with lemon butter.
5) His Ernest Trova “Falling Man” table top statue.
6) Lamb chops at Bar Les Freres.
7) “My custom blazers from Gentry’s Limited.” Ted is wearing a Dakota Grady original in this photo.
8) Cashmere scarves.
9) Netflix. “I don’t really binge watch but I loved The Crown, Ozark and Black Mirror.
10) His two sons Nick (25) and Ira (26). Ira lives in the guest house of Ted’s home and they two meet up in the main house for Game of Thrones or dinner.
