The art in the dining room (top) is actually moss by JF Chen ($2,250) & the 17th-century Italian table is from Christie’s ($11,000). 

Vanishing Into Nature | NYT

Instead of trying to compete with the beauty of the natural landscape, Mr. Oppenheim created a house that recedes into it, with 300-year-old recycled barn wood and locally quarried stone cladding and enormous picture windows.

Even inside, he said, “I like invisible doors, fixtures, door openings and drains.” So the doors, which are unframed, disappear into the walls. Doorknobs are narrow bronze strips, known as “knife-edge pulls,” which disappear into the doors.

1) ugh look at all these stupid expensive bullshit

2) ugh but i want to live there

haha i have the same reaction to most present day “modernist” houses (that moment when you want to say ‘modern modern’ and then ‘contemporary modern’)

i like to think they could all be public property some day, so something good might be salvaged of all the work and care that went into making them…at least some of them (I have the same reaction to Gilded Age artifacts like Tiffany lamps and paintings by John Singer Sargent—I like to see them end up in public museums)
