The Future Perfect turns 1970s Beverly Hills house into third Casa Perfect showroom


Design gallery The Future Perfect has created its third Casa Perfect showroom to pay homage to its 1970s aesthetic of the Beverly Hills house it inhabits.

The roaming gallery opened its showroom in the Trousdale Estates neighbourhood to follow previous stints in a nearby house that once belonged to Elvis Presley that opened in 2018 and a modernist Hollywood Hills home that opened in 2017.

Like with previous outposts, the space occupies a functioning home furnished with collectible designs.

The property was originally completed in 1971 by modernist architect Raul F Garduno and was overhauled to leave existing style intact.

"Our new home for Casa Perfect LA is my favourite house yet," said The Future Perfect founder David Alhadeff.

"The Casa Perfect concept for me has always been about utilising incredible architecture – in this case a jewel that has been virtually untouched since 1971 – as a backdrop for our contemporary programme."

A number of details take on the 1960s and '70s aesthetic like dark wooden doors, an exposed stone wall and an orange-hued carpet that is laid across the residence.

In the dining area, they are offset by a suite of bright furnishings from artist Matthew Day Jackson's Wonky collection, which is debuting in the new casa.

They include orange chairs, a green table and a blue dresser made of cardboard covered in carbon fiber and epoxy, giving an unfinished look.

A more muted palette decorates the living area, including chairs by Tbilisi studio Rooms Design and a side table by Bari Ziperstein. Vertical louvers line the large windows wrapping the room, which offer views to the curved swimming pool outside.

Other works on show in the property include the balloon-like Blowing Chair and Stool in the kitchen by Seungjin Yang, an illustrated stool by Reinaldo Sanguino in the bedroom and lighting by Lindsey Adelman.

Casa Perfect also showcases works by Floris Wubben, Chris Wolston, John Hogan, Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Eric Roinestad, Cody Hoyt, Ben & Aja Blanc, Seungjin Yang, Christopher Stuart and Reinaldo Sanguino.

Alhadeff founded The Future Perfect in 2003. Last year, it opened an exhibition space inside a townhouse in New York's West Village, filled with collectible homeware and featuring a wooden staircase designed by David Chipperfield.

It also runs spaces at 55 Great Jones Street in New York and 3085 Sacramento Street in San Francisco.
