The Jespersen residence sits in virtual isolation atop Emigration Canyon. With its oversize sliding glass doors, flat roof, and meticulous attention to geometric principles, the home creates a haven in the mountain wilderness.

Cassina cab chairs and curvilinear vases from Vietnam create a sense of calm, and provide a warm contrast to the strong clean lines of the interior.
At The Green Ant in Salt Lake City, collector Ron Green supplies locals with a welcome, and well-priced, dose of modern design.

“I love when furniture has a story to tell,” says Green. “My favorite question to ask people selling me furniture is ‘How did this get to Utah?’”
