Russell Wright's home and studio When iconic housewares designer Russel Wright built his home and studio, Manitoga, he was heavily influenced by Japanese design. The sleek buildings nearly blend into the wooded, mossy surroundings, and Wright’s minimalist aesthetic makes it easier to see the house’s bones. Be on the lookout for unusual materials (smushed paper towel rolls, Styrofoam); transitional design pieces that were intended to alternate based on the seasons (cabinet doors that were a different color on each side and flipped twice a year); and, of course, a healthy collection of Wright’s own work, including cups and pitchers in nearly every color of the rainbow. Closes November 9.

John D. Rockefeller chose Westchester for the site of his family’s estate, Kykuit, which is Dutch for “lookout.” The four-story Georgian main house is the primary draw, but you will also want to check out the Italian-inspired stone grotto, the orangerie modeled after the ones at Versailles, and the bomb shelter that Henry Kissinger himself spent some time in. Make a day of it by splurging for a dinner at the James Beard-lauded Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant nearby. Closes November 8.

Parks & Nature
For design with a dose of springtime sun, head to Grace Farms — a New Canaan community center with 80 acres of outdoor space. The pièce de résistance here is the striking River Building (courtesy of Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architecture firm SANAA), which winds through the greenery like a snake. The complex, which includes an amphitheater, library, dining room and tea pavilion, also programs poetry readings, films and classes. Also in New Canaan, not far from Grace Farms, are several modernist-design homes by masters Philip Johnson, Marcel Breuer and Eliot Noyes.
