Modern Country House
Concrete, steel and glass may strike some as cold, but in the hands of White Webb, it’s anything but. For this weekend home in upstate New York, we emphasized the connection to the outdoors by establishing a foundation of natural materials (linens, leathers, and warm woods), which we layered with verdant greens and other poppy colors from the landscape. Bold, contemporary artwork anchors the rooms while creative contrasts – such as the pairing of a sinuous Kagan sofa with a birch log coffee table or a lacquered Fornasetti dining table with more austere, leather-clad Klismos chairs – make for a vibrant interior that is uncluttered, but far from minimal.
