The Stillman House in Litchfield, CT is one of three modern homes designed by Marcel Breuer in the 1950’s. In response to these homes being built, the conservative white people of Litchfield actually banned further use of the modern building style, as to not conflict with other colonial and Greek revival homes in the area. The interiors combine minimal geometric architectural forms with natural finishes and sensible modern furniture.
