We’ve got these gorgeous photos of a house in Spokane, Washington, designed in 1954 and built in 1955. It’s considered by many to be the best example of Mid-Century design in Spokane, but also the best example of work done by MCM architect Bruce Walker. Known as the Ferris House, it’s located on East 16th Avenue.
The landscape was designed by Lawrence Halprin, who was very highly regarded even in the mid-50’s. and is considered by many to be a master of American landscape architects.
The home’s architecture is of Harvard Post and Beam design/construction and the stunningness of the structure easily extends to the inside, where warm woods and stylish details make the home seem like it goes on forever.
The house was featured in the May 1961 issue of Sunset Magazine and was repeatedly featured in Sunset’s “Ideas for Planning Your New Home” book published throughout the 60’s and 70’s!
Modern beds are not just for people anymore—or just for photogenic French Bulldogs, either. Toronto-based retailer PUP & KIT specializes in contemporary accoutrements for the adored and adoring pet, and their pet beds are stellar illustrations of what happens when modernist principles are, well, thrown to the dogs.
The PUP & KIT pet bed range includes Mid Century-influenced, solid wood creations, tailor-made for the design-savy pet owner and pooch alike—featuring refined profiles, splayed legs, and cushions upholstered in solid colors and prints.
A range of sizes and wood finishes make these pet beds—each of which is hand crafted, upon order, by local artisans—easy to match up with both a pet’s size and the interior design scheme favored by the pet’s two-legged owners.
