Year two of this MAM before-and-after project showcases one of Charlotte’s most iconic midmod masterpieces, one of only a handful of “high-style” midcentury modern buildings in the region. The Cohen-Fumero House was a center of artistic social life in the 1960s and beyond, with the owners hosting art salons and displaying work by local artists. Designed by noted architect Murray Whisnant, the one-story construction boasts an enclosed courtyard, multiple window-walls and cantilevered exterior walls, which appear to float above the grade. Interior features include: mahogany “floating” walls, narrow oak flooring, glass shelves and tall mahogany slab doors with original recessed latches.

Current owner, local realtor and midcentury enthusiast, Charlie Miller has lovingly completed the renovation process, returning the home to its former glory. Only necessary changes have been made; much of the original wood flooring and paneling remains and was incorporated into the new design that honors the original. The home is furnished with a mix of vintage and new midcentury furniture and design elements with such a deft touch, it’s difficult to distinguish which pieces are original and which are new. Stay tuned to see the transformation!
