The Future Perfect’s Los Angeles location is housed within a 1971 Beverly Hills mansion designed by local architect Raul F. Garduno. The residence possesses a seductive low-rise silhouette with long curving hallways and floor-to-ceiling windows that afford panoramic views of the L.A. basin.
When one steps inside, it is clear that the home has been largely preserved from its ’70s heydey, with a profusion of period details including wall-to-wall ochre carpet, vertical blinds, a sunken Roman-style jacuzzi, and popcorn ceilings. This muted, but identifiably ’70s aesthetic was embraced by gallery founder David Alhadeff who believes the era’s design and architecture are undergoing a serious critical reassessment.
Within the sprawling four-bedroom, four-bath, 5,000-square-foot residence Casa Perfect Los Angeles presents a masterclass in contemporary collectible design. Established names such as Lindsay Adelman, Reinaldo Sanguino, and Chris Wolston are layered against vibrant pieces from Ben Mendansky, Chen Chen and Kai Williams, and Bari Ziperstein.
The home is sited within Trousdale Estates, a wooded enclave above Sunset Boulevard that emerged as one of the world’s foremost hubs of modernist architecture in the ’50s and ’60s. The neighborhood’s master architects, including Wallace Neff, Harold Levitt, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
