Bob Weinstein and Eric Hensley are mid-century lovers through and through. Their home holds pieces from big names like Florence Knoll, Eero Saarinen, George Nelson, Arne Jacobsen, Vladimir Kagan and the list goes on and on.
Because of their respect for history, their home in Sag Harbor, Long Island isn't your typical Mid-Century home. Click through the jump to see what else is behind this door.

Although their home is different than other homes with a mid-century feel (built in 1750), they have taken great effort to open up spaces with respect to the house in order to bring in an atmosphere of freshness, light and volume. Mourning rooms became mud rooms, ceilings were lifted, maid quarters done away with and old wallpaper framed, for the past to live on in the new space.

The white picket fence out front was something they both loved before ever purchasing the house.

Their living room blends the heavy old-world Victorian style seamlessly with the clean lined Mid-Century pieces.

The pale walls and white ceilings and floors do wonders for keeping the space light and airy instead of heavy and dark.

The original plank floors were, sanded, bleached, and rubbed with white stain. They make anything that sits against them stand out.

The rest of the slideshow can be found here with amazing views from their backyard, kitchen and more.
