Curbed Poll: Polar Bear Rumpus Room In The Oaks

New, 35 comments

Taking a page from our sister site Racked LA, we're asking you to look at this home and vote on whether you like or dislike it—your choices are 'That's Rather Lovely!,' 'So close,' 'I feel strangely ambivalent about it,' or 'That's Rather Hideous!'

Oh my god, you guys, we're so confused. What is going on here? The modest exterior for this 1920s home belies the schizophrenia hidden within. This house is the Sybil of interior design. At first glance there is some goodlooking Danish and Scandinavian midcentury furniture scattered throughout (including a great Finn Juhl Chieftain chair). And we covet the stereo console. But there's also a chair inspired by a court jester's footwear. And why is there so much paneling everywhere? And for the love of all that is holy, a mirrored, disco ball-bedecked, polar bear-covered rumpus room is so wrong. And yet how can something so wrong feel so right? We want to commit debauchery in that room. The two-bedroom, two-bath house in the Oaks near Griffith Park has a split-level floorplan and is listed for $1.073 million. Listing is here and here.
