Mid century in New Canaan by James Evans

James Evans the architect responsible for this stunning mid century in New Canaan was a student of Louis Kahn. The unique hyperbolic paraboloid roof design is not something you see every day. The roof is so dramatic put pure in shape. The upper floor is nice and open although the floors and the cabinets aren’t doing anything for me, I guess that is personal taste. Could you image calling this structure home and pulling up to it every day after work? It could be your for a cool 2M.

Malone Maxwell Borson Architects

The modern white house by Malone Maxwell Borson Architects appears to be an older build but there isn’t any additional info that I can find on their site. The combination of white brick and the aluminum fame windows is a nice combo. The amount of windows create a dramatic pattern echoing the horizontal bricks. I don’t care for the interior choices so much but the structure is amazing.

Interiors by Humbert & Poyet

Humbert & Poyet have a diverse portfolio working on restaurant, business and private residences. I was more interested in the private interiors as they had more of a modern aesthetic. All of their interiors have a clean approach with an exactness in the design. I was also drawn to some of the vintage pieces found through their projects, they always ad a different dimension as vintage pieces have a an older “face”.

Cracked resin and wood by Andrianna Shamaris

I am quite fascinated by these cracked resin and wood side tables by Andrianna Shamaris. I know they have a feel of glam but there is something natural and unnatural about them. The wood and cracked resin, which looks like crystal, feels like natural elements from the earth while the geometric precision cut shapes feel unnatural. Make sure you visit her site as she has an amazing body of work. These pieces are truly sculpture.

Old mansion turned apartment

This old mansion turned apartment is sporting a fairly eclectic approach when it comes to its interiors. This is only the lower part of mansion but I am very drawn to all of the old architecture. Typically crown molding really doesn’t do much for me but when it is kept monochromatic it make a subtle statement. There are also some nice mid century pieces at play.

Paul McCobb

I have always loved the work of Paul McCobb. The only pieces I have owned of his were a set of four shovel chairs but sadly those are gone. While trolling Flickr I came across some stunning groupings of Paul’s work. Reform Gallery looks to have put together this amazing collection. There is something elegant and refined about the materials and design found in McCobb’s work. Thanks Jonathan for letting me share your photos!
