Thankfully, the house came with many of its furnishings, including a 1940s Florence Knoll sofa, an Elliptical table by Charles and Ray Eames, a George Nelson tripod floor lamp, and a Breuer-designed Long chair. A pair of Barcelona chairs by Mies van der Rohe replaced two Arne Norell Sirocco armchairs.

The lounge, with maple flooring from an old school in nearby Aberdeen, has a Togo sofa by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset.
The front door is outfitted with a Saturn knob by Schlage; the same hardware was used as pulls at Lustig’s June Wayne House.
Circa-1940s documents that were filed with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety credit William H. Thomas, who was a very close friend of graphic designer Alvin Lustig, as the house’s “certified architect.” After extensive research conducted by the home’s previous owner, Andy Hackman, the house’s current owner, Andrew Romano, believes the structure was in fact Lustig’s own design.
Remodeled by resident and interior decorator Jill McCoy and her husband David Hassall with the help of architect Paul Molina, the open-plan living space opens to a small outdoor area. French doors and a wall of windows bring in light. An Eames lounge chair and a Noguchi table add a modern sensibility.
Around the corner from the foyer, there’s a set of Epos Elan 10 speakers in cherry cabinets.

Aumas outfitted a vintage steel-frame sofa by George Nelson in navy blue fabric from Kvadrat and hung one of his own photos just above it. The lamp to the left of the sofa is a 1960s design found at a Lisbon flea market, and to the right of the sofa is a Two-Arms rotating sconce by the mid-century French designer Serge Mouille.

The interior of locally milled poplar contrasts with the home’s metal exterior. Thanks to the six-degree pitch of the site, the dining area leads directly to the yard, while the living room ends with a balcony that’s high above the ground.
“It was a natural choice,” says Adrian of using reclaimed and rescued wood. “I didn’t want to chop down a whole lot of trees.” The walls and ceiling are lined with planks of butternut harvested from diseased trees in Vermont.
The flooring throughout the interior is maple. A vintage Ercol sofa and arm chair, Eclipse coffee table by Stua, Wide Wale rug by Bev Hisey Textile Design, and Moon floor lamp by Estiluz Spain furnish the living room. "Extensive planning went into 'aging in place' forecasting a host of different scenarios about what that meant physically and psychologically," Tedesco says. "We did 'day in the life' modeling to understand all the various barrier free requirements that might arise. This heavily influenced the design of the house especially in the flow of circulation and the size of specific elements including the corridors, door widths, washrooms (showers, sinks and toilets design and location) and bedrooms. Finally the entry sequence from the driveway and the walkway to the front and side doors were designed to be future proofed to allow aging in place."
A walnut-topped table and Womb chair, both by Eero Saarinen for Knoll, offer a cozy spot for reading.

Multi-Function Space: The sitting area sofa converts into a fold-down bed when guests arrive, and the round dining table is perfect for a meal as well as for hosting business meetings. The custom coffee table is topped with a live-edge slab of northwest fir, and has a cool geometric metal base, with casters for easy moving when the bed needs to fold down.
