I'm sorry but I don't know the brand. It was selected by the lighting designer on this project.

yep, to the compass reading but what he really means is, orienting the house so that the day time living areas with large expanses of glass face south (in the northern hemisphere, north in the southern hemisphere) not your front door.

Yes, perfect for that room. May use natural wood trim instead of painted?

This Eichler House on San Francisco Bay serves as a gallery for iconic mid-century modern furnishings and an impressive art collection.
Looking out onto a lagoon in Belvedere, the home's large windows highlight the unique silhouette of the George Nelson Marshmallow Sofa. Since the client's art was to be such a huge focal point for the home's decor, Hutton wanted to stay true to the feeling of the '60s and '70s. The Marshmallow Sofa is a reupholstered re-edition from Herman Miller, and is accented by two end tables Hutton found for a little over $100 in a junk shop in San Francisco — which he simply had refinished for an additional cost.
The sofa had early pop appeal, as seen in this midcentury Eichler, which mixes iconic furnishings with an incredible art collection that includes a portrait by Andy Warhol.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Design Icons: Joseph Eichler
Eichler was intrigued by the concept of indoor-outdoor living. Common to many Eichlers, a triangular window is placed between these horizontal joists and the roof, increasing the grandness of the large window walls.
