Pacific Palisades, CA
This home is a study of mid-century modern design with 60’s European influences. The goal was to make the house feel authentic to the past but modernized for today’s living. The original teak paneling in the upstairs living room was matched to the downstairs space to create continuity. Large scale, unfilled travertine was installed to run throughout the bottom floor of the home’s interior and exterior, constructing a seamless flow. The couple’s desire for an opulent dining room led to walls cladded with real goatskin parchment panels, a 60’s Vennini chandelier, a Hermés Jean Michel Frank dining table, and chairs after Jean Royere. Continuing throughout the home, one embarks on a collection of design classics from legendary Italian architects such as Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Osvaldo Borsani, Ico Parisi and Franco Albini.
