A co-worker at Paramount had a pair of repo Wassily chairs to unload for a total of $125. I called Jim DeLong, and he jumped at the opportunity. They looked great, and they have radiused bends all ove ...

$1,500 seems like a reasonable price.

About as handsome a piece of furniture as FLW ever designed.

The owner does have a case. If the city had made clear in 2014 that the house was protected, this wouldn't have happened, the permit wouldn't have been approved to expand or demolish. At that time, Jo ...

It seems to me, Sr. Kalach is more informed by Luis Barragan than FLW. Take away Barragan's stucco and vivid colors, and you have Kalach.

Hair is a great insulator. As one ages, and hair vanishes, slowly or quickly, that insulation goes with it. One thing few photos of FLW show is him in anything short of full dress, whether in Wisconsi ...

Unfortunately, the house is over the hill from Silver Lake Reservoir, and instead has an unobstructed view of the Golden State and Glendale freeway interchange.

I didn't bother with the PDF (too long for my short attention span), but anything based on either "Many Masks" or "The Fellowship" has to be ignored. They are two of the worst refe ...

The Schweikher House in AZ appeared in Fine Homebuilding, Aug/Sep 1983, 58-62, including photographs. inside and out. The simplicity of the scheme and the grandeur of the interiors was a departure fro ...

I would assume FLW would not wear a bowler because of its lack of aesthetic appeal. What prompted him to wear the hat in the first photo, which made him look like "Wee Willy," is hard to ima ...

Barnsdall contained two, one at Hollyhock, the other at Oleanders (Residence B), which, when it was destroyed, gave rise to the rumor that the Hollyhock skylight was retractable.

There is a differe ...

The hat the man in the buggy is wearing isn't a porkpie. It looks more like a bowler. Did FLW ever wear a bowler?

Absolutely! When "historic fabric" consists of concrete blocks, no matter how decorative they may be, replacing them with new ones should not be a problem.

I have always contended that un ...

The Gamble House losing Ted Bosley is sad. He did a fantastic job running the place.

USC has demonstrated for over 30 years of mismangagement that it does not deserve to take on such responsibilit ...
