Comfortable & Colorful
In designer Trip Haenisch’s midcentury house, white clapboard serves as a backdrop to modern art and sculptural furniture. For a similar effect, Dana Heacock’s graphic print of a seagull has a fun, pop-art feel, Erin Flett’s concentric circles tea towel is practical while adding visual punch, and a bright red, rolling bar cart is a festive throwback to 1950s cocktail culture—and a total attention-getter. A substantial, zinc-topped table grounds the space while a basket handwoven from the type of rope used by lobstermen serves as a textural centerpiece and catchall. It’s a comfortable, colorful aesthetic that has touches of the past—perfected for today.
