‘Round round get around’ retro decor of Mid-Mod jewelbox home


If you’re “bugged driving up and down the same old strip,” this 1967 circular house in the Oakland (Calif.) Hills takes the edges off. 

Literally.

Via Dot & Bo

Designed by Bay Area architect Leon Meyer, the outside is nothing compared to the inside, where the underside of the folded plate roof forms all the ceilings.

The owners—Julian and Desirée Goldklang—found the unusual home in pristine condition. They own Midcentury Moblers, an Oakland store that specializes in finding and restoring midcentury modern pieces, so had been looking for the perfect home to showcase their personal collection of mid-mod furnishings.

Renovations have wiped clean the original appeal of many homes built in that era, which spans the 1950s and 60s, but not this one. It retained all the original fittings in turnkey condition. Julian Goldklang thinks the home’s shape may have been what preserved it. If owners wanted to remodel, they’d have to customize everything, since you can’t just go to the store and purchase round doors and windows.

Truly EVERYTHING structural participates in the arc of the home.

None of the windows or doors are without a bit of a curve. Note the rounded closet doors in the hallways (above and below left) and the curved countertop in the bath (below right).

A circular path leads you from the more public spaces of the house to the more private ones, giving the home, as it's also nestled in the trees, a bit of a cocoon feel.

The master bedroom is one of the few rooms with a door.


The living room capsulizes the couple’s mid-mod acumen.

The sofa is an original Adrian Pearsall design and sports its original upholstery.

Other favorites include the 1970s-era Ib Arberg Parrott Chair (left) and the Hans Wegner Danish modern web chair (right).

The Goldklangs are masters at selecting furnishings that not only accommodate but also cooperate with the house’s scale and round design. A collection of starburst clocks and curvy mirrors show up throughout.
