Can This GQ Exec's Updated '50s Glass House Get Any Sexier?

New, 16 comments

On three quiet acres in Briarcliff Manor, New York, a suburban village about an hour north of New York City, GQ design director Fred Woodward and his wife, Janice, have found their midcentury bliss in a patiently restored 1957 modernist glass house. Originally designed by Roy O. Allen of architecture firm SOM, the striking pad has been rejuvenated by LA-based interior designer Brad Dunning, who sought to give it the most modern materials and an eclectic collection of furniture and art.

As Architectural Digest details in its latest issue, Dunning's major changes included replacing terra-cotta flooring with deep-gray terrazzo and adding an open fireplace that became a sort of a divider between the living and dining areas. Dunning also designed the sleek kitchen sporting Caesarstone countertops and Bassam Fellows stools from Design Within Reach. Get the full story and tour on AD.
