The house features large jalousie windows, designed to take advantage of crosswinds and naturally cool the house. Inside, the main living area is double height and features a mezzanine and the house retains it’s original kitchen. The interior is furnished with key mid-century pieces of the time. There are several pieces produced by Knoll; Bertoia side chairs, Saarinen conference chair and Florence knoll sofa and bench.

Herman Miller collection
Designed in 1956, this home in the British countryside looks as modern today as it would have over half a century ago. The teak panelling, tiled floors and exposed brick work are timeless and the floor to ceiling windows flood all the rooms with light. The Niels Moller dining chairs compliment the teak panelling and contrast with the floor and Vice-versa with Eames Aluminium group chair. Sheepskin rugs and plants soften the overall look.
