How should a mountain house look in the 21st century? In answering that question, Kristan Cunningham and Scott Jarrell, the husband-and-wife duo behind Los Angeles–based Hammer and Spear, ignored the cinematic cues of Jeremiah Johnson and ditched the antlers and the buffalo check. Instead, in this Jackson, Wyoming, sitting room — part of an extensive family compound on which they collaborated with Andersson Wise Architects and OSM Builders — they nurtured a vibe they describe as “humble, approachable, accessible and casual.”
The ingredients are pedigreed, even if the mood is not. An Art Deco table from Morentz, accompanied by cognac leather chairs from the same dealer and illumined by a Serge Mouille pendant from Gueridon, makes a fine games table, while a Tobia Scarpa sofa becomes a luxurious window seat. Upping the casual quotient: a carpeted ottoman and pillows from Pat McGann and a decidedly funky wood stove.
