Martha’s Vineyard home designed for an art collector

Art Collector House-Ashe Leandro-01-1 Kindesign

This contemporary home was designed by architecture and design studio Ashe + Leandro, for an avid art collector, located in Martha’s VineyardMassachusetts. Comprised of three interconnected structures, the residence showcases a very impressive collection, with the great room alone housing the likes of photographer Rashid Johnson, artist Sterling Ruby, British painter and printmaker Howard Hodgkin and artist Aaron Young. The striking light fixtures hanging from the ceiling were commission pieces, created in collaboration with Urban Electric Co. The beautiful seating arrangement invites conversation around the fireplace, while exposed wood support structures injects warmth. The sofas and slipper chairs are designer pieces by Christian Liaigre, that are decorated with striped pillows sources from Ralph Lauren Home. The great room opens up to the outdoors by pocket doors, connecting the space seamlessly with the deck and drawing in fresh breezes during the summer months. Entertaining guests both indoors and out is an easy transition for the homeowners. We love all the fascinating artwork, it really dresses up the white walls, adding personality and a very polished aesthetic.
