South Canyon: Colorful Modern MixMidcentury Living Room, Los Angeles
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Curtis Jeré Metal SculptureAll this isn’t to say that the decade was entirely devoid of fun and flashiness — it was the disco era after all. Hanging a Curtis Jeré mixed-metal sculpture was a favorite way to adorn a monolithic masonry fireplace wall. The brand was a mashup of the names Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels, brothers-in-law who designed costume jewelry together for two decades before launching Artisan House to make mirrors, lights and other decor. In this 1969 home in Southern California, Dessaules floated his client’s vintage Curtis Jeré sculpture in front of the living room’s slump block wall, painted white (Dunn-Edwards’ Swiss Coffee) to contrast with the beams (Sherwin-Williams’ Van Dyke Brown). The yellow screen, green tufted sofa, brown leather chair and nailhead-trimmed daybed are from Dessaules’ eponymous collection of furnishings. The vintage Monteverdi-Young coffee table has cast brass legs, a metal leaf-pattern base and an acrylic top.
