Owner of the Todd Merrill Studio art gallery, this designer’s luxury home truly enhances the flamboyance and uniqueness of the art furniture and contemporary design that is present inside of it. A place where luxury furniture is not only for practical and use matters but they shine on their own due to their incredibly-stunning details and modern design. Todd Merrill is one of New York’s top tastemakers, a connoisseur of blue-chip 20th-century furniture and curator of stellar contemporary works that straddle the lines between art, craft, and design.

As Merrill explains, the 9,000-square-foot luxury home offers a staging ground for future art exhibitions and a space to assemble new acquisitions while he gets to know his subjects’ work intimately.

“This is where I bring things to look at and photograph and create collections,” reflects Merrill

The three-level hillside home filled with the latest collectable design trends and blessed with views of Shinnecock Bay and the Atlantic Ocean is a mid-1980s mash-up of Fire Island beach luxury home style and Charles Gwathmey–inspired modernism. After buying it nine years ago, he and his wife removed the most glaring vestiges of the era: vertical blinds, off-white porcelain tiles, and added French limestone and reclaimed oak floors, whose smoky-hued Scandinavian oil finish complements the warm grey paint on the walls.
