The home of Demetrio Zanetti

I have featured the home of collector and gallery owner Demetrio Zanetti before, HERE. I recently came across the his home again but it looks like quite a few things have changed. If I were a collector and gallery owner I am sure my house would change on a regular basis. Even at my amateur attempt at being a collector, things are always changing and moving around. Does anyone else have that problem?

Barcelona apartment with Prouvé, Mouille & Perriand

This Barcelona apartment with its French inspired feel is full of pieces by designers that we all know. Prouvé, Mouille and Perriand just to name a few. I don’t know that I have seen such an amazing concentration of such pieces other than a museum. The floors are stunning and provide warmth, texture and pattern harmoniously.“The star of the house is a rarity, the prototype of a shelf in collaboration with Prouve Perriand, who stood behind the dining table-study that looks almost like a sculpture.”

Halldor Gunnløgssons house

The Halldor Gunnløgssons house is a pretty amazing example of modernism. Designed and built in 1958 by architect, professor Halldor Gunnløgsson as a private residence. Gunnløgsson lived in the house until his death in 1985. According to the website the house did not need much restoration because it was so well taken care of. At first glance I could see some people thinking the house is too dark but I for one love it. The dark exterior with the dark slate floors are stunning.

Berkeley California Mid century by David K. Burton

This Berkeley California Mid century home by David K. Burton has been kept in pristine condition. The design work on this house started in 1959 and finished in 1960. “the home was constructed in the post-and-beam method, using old-growth quarter-sawn redwood in exterior and interior walls.” You couldn’t build one with those materials these days. The openness of the home was obviously derived form the post and beam construction, a classic element of mid century architecture. Make sure to visit the site, there is plenty of addition information about Burton and the house.

Interiors by Neal Beckstedt

Neal Beckstedt was the only thing that caught my eye in 1stdibs newsletter. I went over to Neal’s website and was super impressed. He has a great way of mixing mid century with contemporary give spaces an authenticity. It also looks like he has some nice projects in the works. If you have a second check out Neal’s work.

Michel Penneman

I have featured the work of Michel Penneman before but I must have missed the piece on his own apartment. Of course my favorite, older architecture with modern furnishings. Michel obviously has great taste in art and design as the interiors of his home are lovingly curated. I am a white wall sort of guy so I appreciate that there aren’t any “accent walls” but to each their own.
