A Vintage Dining Room in Falmouth, England

“It’s far more satisfying to give new life to an old object than to just pick something from a catalog,” says Kathryn Tyler, an interior designer based in the UK. For over a decade, Tyler has been scouring and collecting vintage finds from local thrift stores and websites. The dining room in Tyler's home in Falmouth, England, plucked from our Interior Design issue, is a shining example that holds the designer's bric-à-brac—a trio of black bowls and a $30 three-pieced wooden table surrounded by a set of 1950s Carl Jacobs Jason chairs Tyler snagged on eBay for $400.

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.

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.
