Some houses are just a bit more special than others, certainly these ones are, and their living rooms can tell us a lot. We selected 5 mid-century living rooms from our favourite Case Study Houses, that were carefully furnished to glorify their architecture.
Mid-century living rooms are characterised by open-plans that give plenty of space to decorate them and, in some cases, even to showcase beautiful furniture that are iconic piece of art themselves.
We hope you will enjoy.
Probably the most famous and photographed, the Case Study House #22 is also called the Stahl House and was designed by Pierre Koenig.
The Stahl House -built on a promontory overlooking the city of Los Angeles- has an L-shaped plan with a structure made of steel and glass.
The last house to be of the Case Study House program, the #28, was designed by architects Buff and Hensman and completed in 1966. The design is a hybrid, in which the heaviness of the bricks, which hide the steel framing structure, is lightened by wide areas of glass, ample windows and multiple open courtyards.
