A Manhattan couple took a midcentury home in the Hudson Valley with an "old motel feel" and transformed it into a modern getaway through a series of tactical interventions.
For Hudson Woods, an enclave of modern cottages 100 miles north of New York City, Manhattan architect Drew Lang utilized local materials and craftsmen as much as possible. This quaint leather-back chair is by Hudson Valley designer Michael Robbins.
In Milan, New York, architect William Massie designed a hybrid prefab home around vintage retailer Greg Wooten's impeccable furniture collection. The living room features a 1950s Franco Albini rattan chair, a Crate chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1934, and a 1970s sofa by Edward Axel Roffman.
Far from the skyscrapers of the Big Apple, former Manhattanite Kathleen Triem's home is a striking new addition to small-town Omi's skyline. An extended entry ramp leads into the large living, dining and kitchen space.
The residents of this modernist home, who recently converted an "unfortunate" toolshed into a cute guesthouse, possess an impressive collection of high-design furnishings. A Universal Base Table and a pair of upholstered Molded Plywood Dining Chairs, all by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller, sit in their living room.
