Love it. Palm Springs's brand of modernism is totally bonkers and surreal.

I'll tell you what else this thread is good for: furniture, art, lighting, furnishings.

Not sure at what to point first, everything is on the right place. The copper (?) decor on the outside is amazing.
The carpet is on another level, such an enjoyable place.

One of my favorite Wright's houses... If I remember correctly a couple of years ago I read that the original owner of the house still lives there. A fun detail: the man who ordered the house wanted a television but Wright hated it aesthetically, so he decided to hide the tv in a cabinet, and the tv appears when one says "open sesame"!

Should have gotten one of these:



It would match Wright's aesthetic quite well I think.

That house in Grand Rapids? Must have very good central heating.

The front door in the first pic seems narrow compared to the same door in the interior shots. I think the exterior shot is true, the others are stretched perhaps.

Very nice. The white render with the black frames makes it still look fresh.
