Modern Statement

Without skipping a beat, Henderson then took the laid-back, carefree vocabulary of the architecture and translated it into each space, expertly outfitting the residence with furniture that has lines complementing the home’s modern influence without being a complete departure from a more traditional look. The effect is a house that is streamlined without being too sleek, and cool but not cold. Most importantly, it’s exactly what the homeowners had in mind: no muss, no fuss.
