A wee Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home can be yours for $299K

2017-09-25T16:15:01-04:00

The cute one bed and one bath measures 775 square feet Those looking for a “not-so-big house” that’s “well-versed in the architectural grammar of Frank Lloyd Wright,” per the listing language, look no further than this little single-bedroom in Boise, Idaho. The brokerbabble is more or less spot on and doesn’t hedge on what’s on offer: a cozy residence with one bedroom and one bath on 775 square feet of living space that takes more than just a word or two from Wright’s iconic language. Still, it’s cute, and it’s got character by way of a brick-and-timber construction topped by an oversized, flat overhanging roof, floor-to-ceiling windows, built-in seating around a brick hearth, an integrated kitchen with custom cabinetry, and brick flooring (or else carpeting in parts). It’s all very Frank-Lloyd-Wright. Built in 1980, it’s been virtually untouched since then, but in a good way. A period bathroom and the afore-mentioned kitchen place it squarely in the time-capsule camp, even if the era it’s preserving was merely three decades ago. There’s also a carport and a bonus laundry room. Located at 1085 East Krall Street less than a mile from the Greenbelt, Rivers to Ridges trailheads, and Broadway Avenue, according to the listing, the property is offered at $299,000.

A lot of gorgeous play with light and curves

It’s been a good year for design fair debuts. First there was the Nomad design fair, a “bespoke event” taking over a breathtaking historic villa in Monaco. Now, curtains have been drawn on the inaugural Beirut Design Fair, which coincides with its sister event, Beirut Art Fair, and is not to be confused with the larger-scale Beirut Design Week festival.

Focusing intently on highlighting Lebanese talent, the four-day event, ending yesterday, September 24, showcased established and emerging designers, top galleries, distributors, as well as artisans. “There is a huge design community here,” co-founder Guillaume Taslé d’Héliand tells Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “It’s the most living creative platform in the region.” He, along with with co-founder Hala Moubarak, hope the event will further put Beirut on the map as a design capital.

Get a sense of the debut show through Instagram below.

Walmart and August Home partner to test “in-fridge” delivery service

A brilliant or creepy idea?

Walmart has announced a new delivery concept that will seem really convenient to some and super creepy to others.

Partnering with August Home, a leading purveyor of smart locks, Walmart will begin testing an “in-fridge delivery” service in Silicon Valley that not only does grocery shopping for customers but also puts the food away for them if no one is home. It also applies to general packages, delivering them inside the residence instead of leaving them outside, where they could get lost or stolen.

Here’s how Walmart envisions the service to work. A customer (who also employs August Home’s smart locks in their home) places an order on walmart.com. When the order is ready, a delivery person will bring the groceries and other packages to the house and unlock the door by way of a one-time passcode that the homeowner will have pre-authorized. After the items have been unloaded into the refrigerator, the delivery person will leave, and the door will lock automatically.

The homeowner can monitor the entire process through the August mobile app, even watching the delivery as it happens in real time by way of August home security cameras.

“These tests are a natural evolution of what Walmart is all about—an obsession in saving our customers not just money but also time, making our customers’ lives easier in the process,” the company said on its website. What do you think? Dystopian, or the way of the future?
