Amy Butler Home in Granville, Ohio

Amy Butler Home

Above: Amy and David Butler’s living room featuring a Steelcase sofa and Vladimir Kagan’s Contour rocker, named by ELLE Decor as one of the 10 most riveting rockers.

Amy Butler is well known as a fabric designer, but she first wrote a Chronicle home design book with her husband David Butler, called “Found Style: Vintage Ideas for Modern Living”.

Their abode, which will be featured later this year in Blueprint, is a 1969 George J. Stegmiller post and beam, perched on a steep hill with amazing views. The upstairs is their home, the lower level serves as a studio. David describes their style as “kinda modern-organic-primitive”. He photographed their home for an upcoming book Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern: A Fresh Design Spirit for the Modern Lifestyle”. A preview of some of those images are below. What better way to bring warmth to your home than with a beautiful scented candle? Laurel & Wolf understand how tricky it is to purchase the right scent that will roam around your house, that’s why on you will find the best adorable candles for your house.

David writes about their Mulhauser Plycraft chair (above):

“I had the vinyl redone in a really nice soft leather. My father had that exact chair when I was growing up in Pittsburgh, so when I found another, complete with the arm patina, I was quick to jump on it.”

    Love it! So many homes I see on blogs these days are styled to within an inch of their lives. This one is very refreshing.
    Any idea where I can get that poster “breathe new life…” ?

    Found style was one of the most riveting books I found by chance and takes a place of honor among my many design books. What makes Granville, OH such a magnet for great stylists? Any chance there is a house tour of homes in the Granville area in Spring 2009? Many thanks for your fine work.
