The 2017 Wattles Mansion Designer Showcase Blends Modern Classics With A Nod To Old HollywoodAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Los Angeles’ famous Wattles Mansion, a mission revival estate built in 1908, will host its second annual Designer Showcase, to be unveiled March 22nd and open to the public March 23rd-April 16th, 2017. Produced by Reitzhaus Productions, a veteran showcase production company led by designer Victoria Reitz, the 2017 theme of Hollywood History: The New Classics is fitting considering Gurdon Wattles, the original homeowner, bankrolled much of early Hollywood.
Designer participants this year will include noted names such as Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design, Kym Rodger, Ryan Saghian, Sherwin Williams and Williams-Sonoma. The Wattles Mansion features 47 acres of former botanical gardens and was originally designed by Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey, who also designed San Marino’s Huntington Library, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and the now-gone Ambassador Hotel, which was a legendary Los Angeles location.
Tickets are currently onsale via the Wattles Showcase website; admission is $40 per person and funds raised from this year’s ticket sales will benefit two separate charities: No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) and Saving Iconic Architecture (SIA), which also happens to be Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield’s non-profit.
The Wattles Mansion is located at 1824 N Curson Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90046 and will be open Thursdays through Sundays, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
