Revisionist History: inspiration for renovating a period house

Five of the best contemporary country houses on the market, selected by our Head of Sales, Georgia Grunfeld

Heath Road, Barming, Kent This immaculately maintained single-storey house was designed by the current owners in the early 1970s, and contrasts dark wooden floors with white walls and exposed brick. The Arco Floor Lamp is at the heart of the open-plan living area, whilst at the far end is a slightly raised dining room, clad in wonderfully rich rosewood.

Osier Court, London E1 This apartment combines a striking Art Deco exterior with finessed mid-century interiors. London-based Norwegian design studio Hunting and Narud have re-imagined the space with a wonderful blend of playful aestheticism and practical functionalism.

The living room of the São Paulo house of architect Marcos Acayaba and his wife, Marlene, which Acayaba designed in 1975; the built-in concrete banquette is fitted with velvet cushions, the rug is Chinese, and the floor is lined with concrete tiles colored with iron oxide.

In the living room of designer Kate Reynolds’ Windsor Terrace townhouse, a Timothy Oulton chaise, Danish cocktail table, and wooden media console infuse the airy space with nods to traditional mid-century modern style.

Fresh start: minimalist interior inspiration for the new year

The Hall, London SE3 This apartment sits within Blackheath’s Cator Estate and was designed and built by Eric Lyon’s renowned development company, Span, in the 1950s. Many of the property’s original features have been retained, including the original vinyl tiling in the living room. The current owner has selected pieces of mid-century furniture to complement the interior, including an iconic Eames Rocking Chair.

In the living area of Brian Atwood’s apartment, which was renovated by architect Matteo Bermani and decorated by Nate Berkus, a vintage Arredoluce Triennale floor lamp illuminates a sofa by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia. The 1970s cocktail table is from 1st Dibs, and the vintage hand chair was found at a Manhattan antiques shop.

The side tables are from Prime Gallery in Palm Springs, California, paintings by José Parlà flank a South African wall hanging made from cowrie-shell-embellished aprons, and the rug is Moroccan.

In a home belonging to designers Kevin Roberts and Timothy Haynes, the black and white living room showcases 1950s armchairs by Joseph-André Motte, upholstered in a Holland & Sherry fabric. The 1960s cocktail table is by Tommi Parzinger.

The Sugden House, Watford, Hertfordshire Designed by the celebrated architects Alison and Peter Smithson in 1955 this house has extraordinarily-preserved original mid-century interiors. The design combines functionality with a reverence for materials, offset, again, by the inclusion of mid-century design classics including the Eames Wire Chair.

In the living area of art collector Benoist Drut’s home in upstate New York, a photograph by Nadav Kander hangs above a 1940s American daybed, the armchair at left is by Ayala Serfaty, and the cocktail table is by Karl Springer.

A vibrant set of Eames DSR Chairs are gathered around the dining table, over which hangs as Verner Panton Flowerpot Pendant.
