Midcentury stylish Kent Lake House

"An amazing lakeside retreat by Amy Lau, filled to the brim with premium vintage modernist design.

From writer Fred A. Bernstein:"A founder of Design Miami, Lau has an encyclopedic knowledge of 20th-century decorative arts. In implementing her plan for the Scheidts’ house, Lau says, she was as much a curator as a decorator, including pieces by both well-known designers (the sectional sofa is by Edward Wormley for Dunbar) and lesser-known greats like Denmark’s Greta Jalk, who designed the swoopy chair and ottoman. Thanks to the architecture—which is restrained, modern and at the same time lively—the furniture feels right at home."

The swoopy lounge chair is actually by Vladimir Kagan, though the ottoman is probably Jalk. Also included in this carefully selected collection of vintage furnishings are a T.H Robsjohn-Gibbings coffee table; an Arredoluce brass floor lamp; a Curtis Jere wall mirror above a Florence Knoll hanging cabinet and Edward Wormley stools; a set of Timo Sarpaneva candlesticks on a Jens Risom dining table surrounded by Hans Wegner wishbone chairs, Erik Buck barstools and Jens Quistgaard ice buckets; a Hans Wegner armchair paired with a Gilbert Waltrous desk lamp; George Nelson beds with Paul McCobbPlanner Group dresser, nightstand, and benches; and a Sori YanagiButterfly stool in the hall.Photographed by Joshua McHugh, see the full slide show here."
