The December Architectural Digest runs a spread on Cindy Sherman's Hamptons farmhouse, which the photographer bought for $4.65M in Fall 2011. In the years since, Sherman recruited designer Billy Cotton and architect Annabelle Selldorf—it doesn't appear Selldorf did any work, but she did serve as an "advisor"—to turn the 19th-century farmhouse, already renovated, into "a balance between practicality, funkiness, and chic" while still preserving the home's character. "We tried to reproduce something off-kilter, not precious," Cotton says. "This is not a stunning example of Colonial architecture, just a comfortable, formerly rickety farmhouse. We both abhorred the idea of faux rustication." Pairing Noguchi with Pakistani textiles, say, or a Gustavian daybed with a 1930s parchment table, the team concocted a wildly eclectic and unexpected space that appears comfortable and ultra-cool, beyond perfect for this artsy East Hampton enclave known simply as Springs.
