India Mahdavi’s Artsy Country Farm [Connecticut]

Paris-based decorator India Mahdavi oversaw the daring transformation of a Connecticut residence for longtime clients. The house, which is composed of a historic barn and a number of modern additions, as seen from the entrance drive. Gorgeous!

In the living room, Mahdavi grouped two pairs of sofas, twin screens, and cocktail tables—all of her own design—with vintage André Arbus lounge chairs and Jean Royère armchairs; the red metal floor lamp is also by Royère, the sculptural floor lamp at far left is by Andrea Branzi, and the rug is by Fedora Design.

Another barn serves as the pool house; the dining table and benches are by Piet Hein Eek.

Bespoke cabinetry and a Campana Brothers suspension light enliven the kitchen, where the owners’ golden retriever relaxes on the floor; the stools are by Bassam Fellows from Design Within Reach, the Eames side chairs are by Vitra, and the oven is by Miele.
