Micah Rich, one of the original founders of A Good Company and The League of Moveable Type, considers himself somewhat nomadic, jumping from place to place every few months. But he always finds his way back to his childhood home in Camillus, New York, where his dad still lives. He’s been here for the past nine months working on a few projects, including building a new font platform called Lettercase, developing a couple web projects and organizing font commissions for The League. The home has been in the family for a long time and was where his mother grew up, as well. She was an antique dealer with an eye for unique old treasures and was responsible for most of the decor before she passed away. As Micah points out, there’s an interesting mix of new technology hidden inside beautiful old furniture, which relates to his own decorating style. Thanks, Micah! — Anne
Image above: My second office. The porch is where I usually work in the summertime. It has windows on three sides and is completely full of fascinating old Native American and cowboy knickknacks.

Image above: A few of my lenses, some old pewter candlesticks, and a model boat I love. I worked on a schooner one summer a few years back, the Malabar VII, and have since been in love with sailing. I took that model boat with me when I lived in Boston and have yet to repair that broken jib.
Image above: The kitchen, which is the first room you see when you walk in the house. The counters are all black marble, the not-pictured refrigerator has a punch tin face, and the dishwasher is completely hidden inside what looks like one of those cabinets.
