Pieces of Danish modem fumirure de-
/ signed byAme Jacobsen, Poul Klaerholm,
Nanna Dizel and orhers from the 1940s
through today are sffewn throughout
both houses. One of Nielsen's favorite
pieces in the fust-floor great room of the
main house is an Indian-red Egg sofa by
Arne Jacobsen, of which only eight were
ever made and onJy five remain in exis-
tence. It is flanked by a black learher Egg
chair, also byJacobsen, and a glass cock-
tail table framed in polished stainless steel
by architect/furnirure designer Poul Kjaer-
holm. Kjaerholm's black leather day bed,
known as the PK 80, is identical to rhose
used in the recent renovation of the Mu-
seum of Modern Art in New york and
compietgs the room.
Hickory flooring, maple baseboards and
oak doors soften the starkness of the mod-
ernist fumiture. Tirzo sets of sliders and a
pair o[ French doors grant expansive views
of the Gulf of Mexico and are comple-
mented by 11-foot ceilings and an open
floor plan. Irom the grear room guests
enter the famiiy room or tfuough the but-
ler's pantry into the contemporary kitchen.
