Montauk Compound

The architect, James Biber of Pentagram Architects, sits in the living room of the main house, which contains perhaps the best collection of mid-century furniture in the U.S. In the room pictured we see a sofa by Edward Wormley for Dunbar, c. 1948; a six-piece coffee table by Hvidt and Nielsen, Denmark, 1950's; a pair of armchairs by Florence Knoll for Knoll, 1950's; a pair of swivel chairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer-Coggin, 1960's; a table lamp by Lester Geis for Heifetz; a "Surfoard" coffee table by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller, c. 1954; and a side table by Risom for Risom Designs, c. 1955, among others.
