Erickson’s Filberg House, posted here on May 20, is actually for sale. A friend found it online by accident, while idly searching for midcentury modern houses outside Vancouver. (Above photo by MidCentArc on Flickr; below from realtor.ca.) It’s near Comox on Vancouver Island. I’m ambivalent about this era of Erickson, or maybe it’s this material; I prefer the Graham House, which has unfortunately been demolished, or one of his other cedar houses.

In the late 1920s, the modernist designer and architect Eileen Gray designed and built a landmark piece of modernist architecture in the form of a seaside house. The Irish-born Gray is best known for her furniture design (her Bibendum chair is visible in the third photo above), but it is odd that she is only known as a furniture designer considering her architectural contributions.
