California indoor/outdoor living can be yours in this lovely, Anshen & Allen-designed Eichler.

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Walnut Creek's Rancho San Miguel neighborhood—an East Bay subdivision home to 375 Eichlers—this 1959 atrium model Eichler stands out with a low-slung midcentury post-and-beam profile and period-appropriate interior updates.

A trivet that's hard to cover up.  Trivets are a necessity, but there's no reason to keep them boring. Try one out with sharp, clean classic lines -- and the variation in the wood grain pattern adds a distinct character to each piece. Bonus: it doubles as an art piece when it's not in use.
