One of the most distinctive homes in the Hudson Valley is back on the market. Surrounded by nearly 46 acres with views of the Catskills, the “Sleeve House” is an ultra-contemporary home created as two long volumes, a smaller one “sleeved” into a larger one, which allows for separate public and private spaces. Designed by Adam Dayem’s Actual/Office Architects, the three-bedroom home sits on a sloped hill and is wrapped in charred wood of varying thickness, a nod to the rural area’s historic barns and agricultural buildings. 6sqft first wrote about this home when it was listed for $2,100,000 in 2017. Now it’s available again, this time for $2,275,000. If you’re loving the interior design of this home, we’ve sourced a few key pieces that are identical or similar to the items in the listing photos. So you can get the look–without having to move.

If you live in the city, you probably don’t have acres of yard or a sprawling patio (if you have access to any private outdoor space at all, you’re in a fortunate minority). Choose furniture, gadgets, and decor items that work in your space, and you’ll find yourself with an outdoor living paradise.

Lovers of mid-20th-century modern design have never had so many options.

And many of the best designs are still in production today, available from sources that specialize in finding that perfect Prouve dining table or Togo sofa, genuine or “inspired by.” Below you’ll find enough sources to make your modernist dream interior a reality–without a trip to Denmark or a time machine.
