Fate of J. R. Davidson House In Peril; Furniture to Go to Auction

April 29, 2013

J. R. Davidson, architect of Case Study Houses #1, #11, and #15, was instrumental in transforming the Los Angeles landscape through his mid-century houses that employed expansive yet sensible floor plans. The upcoming May 19, 2013 Modern Art & Design Auction features a selection of furniture (each lot comes with a Julius Shulman photograph) designed by Davidson for the Kingsley residence, a modern gem in the Pacific Palisades. While the fate of the house is still unknown, it seems likely that it will be torn down to build a larger structure.

Now is your chance to acquire furniture from a home that may suffer the same destruction as many homes that helped to define Los Angeles’ modern landscape.
