The home of Dwell founder Lara Hedberg Deam, renovated by her husband architect Chris Deam. Complimenting the interior are some select pieces of 20th and 21st Century design. A set of Eames fiberglass side chairs on dowel bases surround a freeform Nakashima-style slab table, with a pair of Ystad brass candleholders and a trio of Tom Dixon pendants overhead. Facing an Achille Castiglioni Brionvega stereo is a Bouroullec brothers Facett sofa and pair of pink Slow lounge chairs that flank an Eames LTR table. The rug is by Tejo Remy and Rene VeenHuizen. Arne Jacobsen wall sconces illuminate the bathroom and the master bedroom, home to a vintage Canadian classic modernist design: the String chair by Jacques Guillon. A set of Konstantin Grcic chairs grace the outdoor dining nook.
The subdued monochromatic palette punctuates color. The rich wood slab table, the pink lounge chairs, and the pea green outdoor detailing are perfect examples of this.
"In paring back the home's aesthetic, Chris kept the color palette as simple as possible. Limiting the surfaces to either painted white or stained black allows colorful art, objects, furniture, and people to really pop."
