A Class Act Inspiration

Beautiful images of the home of Seattle collectors Larry and Susan Winn, from "Class Act" in the design archives of Met Home...

What makes this space so amazing is that it is a historic elementary school converted into a condominium. After a dramatic transformation, the space is now an apt reflection of the homeowners' style... rich artwork, bold accents and an eclectic mix of furnishings all abound.

"The great room features a massive pivoting stack of wood-framed windows that contribute to the room’s colorful take on modernism circa 2006. A T. L. Lange watercolor hangs on the wall beside the window."

The fusion of a traditional Carolean Era baby-blue chair, classic mid-century accents, the rustic birch-crafted coffee table combined with the flow of ambient light, make the room feel like a contemporary, ethereal art gallery...

"Canvases by Laddie John Dill (left) and T. L. Lange overlook an 18-foot table fabricated from a slab of reclaimed redwood set on limestone piers that were salvaged from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake."

And get this... the light fixtures are custom made from... crab traps. Bright and brilliant!
Truly a signature space full of creativity, character and class... c'est magnifique.
