Home Tour: A '50s gem, newly polished in the hills of Glendale

March 27, 2010 | 10:56 am

Christophe Burusco's hunt for a modernist house took him to the hills of Glendale and a single-story, stone-and-glass box that opened up to the San Gabriel Mountains beyond.

Called the Daily House after original owners Allan and Jean Daily, the 1,900-square-foot residence had strayed far from its 1954 roots -- but the potential was undeniable: The kitchen is small but period-perfect. Kitchen countertops received a fresh white Formica finish, and the original cabinet doors were repaired, cleaned and painted orange and gray. Burusco selected a mod 1950s pendant by Poul Henningsen to hang above a Saarinen table and Eames molded fiberglass chairs. Check out the rest of the fab photo gallery here:
