Modern in the Country

Eric and Melinda purchased a 10-acre plot of land in rural Yelm, Washington, with visions of a new home on the range. There would be vineyards, gardens, an orchard, bees and chickens—typical country fodder—but they would showcase their design sensibility with a not-so-typical modern abode. Enlisting Matthew Coates of Coates Design, the outcome is a modern home that, while striking, is still a natural fit in the country location.

Revolution in an Unlikely Land

Old money and ultraconservative attitudes aren’t really compatible with forward thinking and radical ideas, but during the late 1940’s, a group of students and teachers from the Harvard Graduate School of Design moved to New Canaan, Connecticut and rocked the world of architecture. Philip Johnson, John Johansen, Landis Gores, Eliot Noyes, and Marcel Breuer, known as the “Harvard Five,” created homes in a style that were the antithesis of traditional, in a town that was, and still is, traditional to its core.

Lighting Designer We Love: Michael Anastassiades

For someone whose design philosophy is "to produce exceptionally designed objects of permanent value," you'd better believe it. Originally trained as a civil engineer and a graduate of industrial design at the Royal College of Art, London-based lighting designer Michael Anastassiades has been producing pieces that masterfully combine fine detailing with honest, high-quality materials, resulting in works of elegant simplicity.

Kitchen We Love: Catskills Farmhouse

A self-taught designer with a respect for both new and old embarked upon a solo mission to resuscitate a 19th-century homestead in upstate New York.

He opened up the back wall with a facade of skyscraper glass and added contemporary finishes (like a striking Cor-Ten fireplace column and wraparound granite countertops) to complement older touches like salvaged ceiling beams and a farmhouse sink.
