Mural for Auction, House Included!

At Boutique Homes we love Modern Architecture and design, so when we discovered that Marcel Breuer’s The Stillman House will be up for auction on November 19th we started dreaming about adding it to our collection!

The house will be up for auction through Wright a site that specializes in modern and contemporary art and design. But this year they took it to the next level with their first house! This is definitely a rare and incredible home by one of the world’s most important modernists. The story of this property began with a visit to the famous MOMA in New York where a demonstration house on display caught the eye of Rufus and Leslie Stillman, this inspired them to ask Marcel Breuer to build for them the first modern house in the small town of Lichfield, Connecticut. 

The house has a uniquely modern configuration and it has been adorned in the interior with a Xanti Schawinsky custom mural wrapping the living room fireplace and on the outside a mural by Alexander Calder and that is what caught our eye!

So if you love architecture and design as much as we do make sure you get your paddles ready!
