Some homes look like a furniture showroom, with perennially plumped pillows and sophisticated baubles placed just so. Some are a bit more eclectic – a jumble of inherited pieces and found objects arranged with more attention to function than form.
Perhaps the best homes, however, are those where every furnishing and fabric, all the art and antiques, each nook and cranny is an engaging reflection of the homeowner himself. Such is the case with the Dallas home of Geoffrey Henning.
One of several "modern" homes built during the 1950s mini-boom in historic Kessler Park, the house sits on a full acre amid towering shade trees and features the streamlined design and large windows characteristic of mid-century design.
