Located in Ulster County, this historic house was built in 1760 and was the site of NY State Senate’s first meeting. Recently, its become the home of Kenyan Lewis, a designer specializing in prop and antique sourcing, interior design build-outs, and creative direction. The aesthetic is a simple, rustic, American-inflected style that emphasizes objects that are well-made, durable and useful: wire storage baskets, machine-age metal tools, leather couches, canvas bags, colorful woolen blankets and interiors made of barn wood. Every inch of the home is filled with rare vintage items from an amazing collection of early 20th-century Americana. A barn behind the house serves as Kenyan’s studio, complete with workshop and bar while there’s a plan to build a sauna in another barn.
