Remember earlier this week when we talked about the Margarido House, you know that posh, modern home that’s about to be the first LEED-H Platinum home in Northern California? Well, the always entertaining Sally Kuchar of SallyTV has just posted these videos and we thought it’d be fun to share. You might know Sally from her recent work designing the Silicon Valley Dwell Nexthouse, but she’s also a regular contributor to Apartment Therapy SF and MoCo Loco. I can’t help but watch these videos and think about the endless possibilities presented by thoughtful design and modern green materials.
Denmark50, located in Los Angeles, is comprised of a showroom and warehouse full of vintage Danish Modern furniture and accessories. And of course, buying vintage is such a green way to go. The showroom (below) is a nice display of what the company has to offer, but the warehouse (also below) is the really amazing part. Mid-Century Danish furniture is stuffed into the large space as far as the eye can see: couch after couch, chairs, tables, and any other piece one could imagine.
I find the stories behind green homes to be quite interesting. I was at the gym and happened upon this article in Home Magazine about Adam Coulter, a 27 year-old screenwriter and actor living in LA. He successfully battled cancer in his teens and has been in remission since that time. But since his bout with cancer, he’s always attempted to live in the healthiest environment possible. This third-floor condo is an example of Couter’s quest for healthy living — it’s been renovated with bamboo flooring, organic linen draperies, recycled glass tiles, zero-VOC paints, and locally produced, sustainable materials, etc.
