A New Kitchen for an Old Modern Home

New Canaan, CT

Ask and you shall receive! Earlier this week we wrote about the Survey of Modern Homes in New Canaan, CT and waxed poetic about how nice it would be to see the interiors. Then designer Lauren Fister sent over these lovely images of the newly finished kitchen in Celanese House by Edward Durell Stone (1959)...

We mentioned earlier this week that many of these New Canaan modern homes are in jeopardy of being torn down because they have not been properly maintained. We were thrilled to read Lauren's email about how she along with Stephen King and Snaidero Kitchen Design are updating a few of these old modern homes' kitchens. As any house flipping show will tell you: kitchens and bathrooms sell houses. Perhaps giving these historic modern homes new, modern features in keeping with the original spirit of the architecture will help keep them from being demolished in the future!
