There is nothing like a relaxing beach house to escape the rush of mundane city life and enjoy a rejuvenating weekend with friends and family. Overlooking an idyllic stretch of beach and the vast Pacific in the distance is all about a tranquil lifestyle wrapped in modern comfort.
The historical abode is fittingly replete with many of the furnishings produced by Carl Hansen & Søn and has the appearance of a quintessential lived-in Carl Hansen showplace. Indeed the large attic was renovated in 2014 and now acts as a showroom and additional living space. The attic’s angled roof helps confer a sense of intimacy and the wide oak planks from Danish company Dinesen add warmth depth and character.
A lavish pool barbecue area spa with ocean views and a tranquil garden add to the opulence of the home that encourages you to spend more time outdoors than inside. A warm earthy color palette and curated décor choices complete this expansive East Hampton retreat.
A home that combines the historical past of with a modern lifestyle was designed by Bates Masi Architects to meet the needs of a young couple and their growing family. It is the potato barns in the region that offered the template for this lovely fusion of past and present as the exterior of the home borrows from their classic design.
Moreover Knud Erik’s home is a truly resplendent dwelling place the embodiment of a man who places great value on his company’s legacy and Denmark’s enviable design heritage. It is doubtless a captivating homey and much-loved place of residence.
The larger part of Carl Hansen & Søn’s portfolio comprises many of Hans J. Wegner’s furniture designs (the collaboration between Wegner and Hansen began in the late 1940s) alongside works by other designers both old and new.
We absolutely adore homes where ingenious designers and architects come together to not only revamp and rejuvenate an old and dreary interior but also end up creating an entirely unique and exciting new design style.
