Richard Florida's Modern Pool House
A former garage gets a bright transformation into a high-design poolside retreat.
Economist, urbanist and author, Richard Florida, and his wife, Rana, love contemporary design. This sleek space connects to their pool and outdoor dining area, but can be closed off via a white, rolling garage door. A surfboard, graphic cushions, Philippe Starck's light blue Prince Aha stool and modern furniture from Design Within Reach, such as the daybed and Bertoia chair, all contribute to a beachy, L.A. vibe.
