A Connecticut Great Room

spaces #8

Connecticut, USA

Ronni Molinari’s 1810 home may blend in with the other New England-style houses in this quiet Connecticut town, but thanks in part to the modern shelving by USM Modular Furniture, the interior is anything but traditional. Nowhere is that more evident than in her family’s “studio,” which the architect describes as a “playroom for the creative soul.” Below the dramatic vaulted ceiling, Molinari, along with her husband and two sons (aged 4 and 7), work on their respective artwork and design projects, ranging from Lego structures and 3-D-printed objects to photography and video. Spanning an entire wall, a USM Haller modular storage system organizes all of their supplies – books, fine art materials, tools and assorted hardware. Molinari chose pure white to complement the room’s sculptural furniture and artwork, which includes a three-dimensional wall hanging by the Japanese-American artist Jacob Hashimoto and a photographic print by Henri Cartier-Bresson. “With the floating volume of closed compartments at the center, I felt that a color other than white would draw the eye to the center, and I wanted the piece to register as one volume,” the designer says. “I like the way you see the shelving system as a whole first, then discover the floating volume as an after-thought.”
