From Domino…the quote here, with an image that includes Dansk on the shelves, is a great indicator that Dansk has been an enduring product:
"The most sensitive approach toward a sustainable life is to eliminate waste by acquiring stuff that lasts."

Perched on stone cliffs, this circa 1961 residence is an architectural masterwork and a Scandinavian-American landmark. Designed and built for the founders of the tableware company Dansk Designs, this is the only home completely designed by Jens Quistgaard, the founding designer for the company. With special attention to every historic and mid-century modern detail, from the dramatic pointed roofline to the handcrafted brass hinges, this home has remained cutting-edge since the time of construction through today.
The interior of this seven-bedroom home features walls of windows looking over the 10-acre swimming lake. Soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces, teakwood kitchen cabinets, a Japanese-style soaking tub, a wide spiral oak staircase, a wine cellar, stone and teak terraces, and a wealth of one-of-a-kind details create a unique and inviting atmosphere throughout all 7100 square feet of the sophisticated and comfortable living space.
Equally impressive, the landscape of this 20-acre property is one of the most extensive woodland gardens in the Northeast; this is the oeuvre of a gifted homeowner who spent nearly 50 years creating this four-season horticultural paradise. Tranquil and carefully planned garden paths wind around the shore of Cobamong Pond and offer endless opportunities to appreciate hundreds of varieties of Japanese Maples, Rhododendrons, and other specimen plantings. Magnificent in every season, the gardens are complemented by acres of fragrant woodland and the sparkling lake, where swimming, fishing, boating, and ice-skating can be enjoyed.
Early settlers named this area Cobamong, an Algonquin phrase meaning “hidden place,” which still holds true today, as the estate simultaneously camouflages with the natural landscape and enjoys breathtaking views of the picturesque and private Cobamong Pond. Today the setting continues to delight with its sense of peace and seclusion, all while being only minutes to Armonk, Greenwich, and Bedford—and New York City is easily reached by train or car within 40 minutes.
This home is currently on the market for $7,000,000. Here is the listing, via Sotheby’s.
