J.M. Roberts Residence

If you’re looking for a house built by a famous designer, you can own the J.M. Roberts Residence designed by Richard Neutra. You’re probably already familiar with the work of the Austrian-born Neutra, but if you’re not, he’s one of the most important modernist architects that ever lived. Neutra’s spider leg detailing, asymmetric compositions and modular grid styling are all present in the J.M. Roberts Residence, a house designed in 1955 and scheduled for demolition in 2014. Thankfully, new owners purchased the property and brought in an architectural historian and master craftsman to restore the residence to its original glory. Stepping through the textbook mid-century modern property will have you finding new favorite elements like a tongue and groove ceiling or Texas shellstone fireplace at every turn, but our absolute favorite has to be the floor to ceiling mitered glass corner window in the master bedroom that overlooks a koi pond and live oak tree.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
