Martha Clarke's Connecticut Farmhouse

The New York Times 12.7.08

Choreographer and director Martha Clarke has lived in a Sherman, Connecticut farmhouse since 1982. She often works there, too, and uses the light-filled room pictured above as her workspace (it was once the painting studio of a previous owner, Arshile Gorky). The New York Times gives us a tour and Clarke's favorite things about the house: “white lilacs, wide-board floors, and a kitchen window with a view.”

We're fond of the sophisticated, yet relaxed furnishings and the natural light! Did you notice the Thonet bench in the studio?
