A Cottage in Sagaponack

The exterior of what looks like a vernacular Hamptons shingle cottage, designed by architect Blaze Makoid, is intentionally deceiving. For the interiors, Axis Mundi typically decided not to play by the rules. Instead of de rigeur nautical artifacts, floppy sofas and wicker furniture, the firm responded to Makoid’s all-white interior envelope by injecting rooms with comfortable modern elegance that’s more contemporary Cap Ferrat than Eastern Long Island. Clean furniture silhouettes—from Cassina, Poltrona Frau and B&B Italia—a Massimo Vitali beach scene, a Moooi chandelier and industrial finishes (such as the steel of the fireplace surround and the anodized aluminum of a sleek Bulthaup kitchen) spark a creative tension between indoors and out. The gray palette provides a quiet backdrop for the nature outside, except for the master suite, where custom oak panels and blue shades create a reassuring warmth conducive to sleep.

[JK] I like the glass doors on the fireplace... but do they stay closed when the fire is on? Seems like there's no tile here. How does that work? [GK] Open doors for fire. I liked the look of the fireplace with the glass.

Dislike: bright white and charcoal/black, also design feels bland Like: design of the chairs, but not in black frame, maybe light colored wood frame

Like: clear lines, the sofa looks comfortable, interesting coffee tables (all four are round but different - nice idea... the double table can be a nice idea too). Dislike: the carpet might be a bit too furry. Something that I don't like about the design of the arm chairs (too simple? The narrow wooden handles?)
