If you follow design aficionados on Instagram, you've undoubtedly stumbled upon Stahl House, a modernist-styled house designed by architect Pierre Koenig in the Hollywood Hills made famous by photographer Julius Shulman, who captured two women leisurely sitting in a corner of the house overlooking the panoramic view of the city through floor-to-ceiling glass walls. It's no wonder why Stahl House has captured the interest of midcentury lovers everywhere—few homes represent the living ideals of the 1950s better than this ultra-minimal home sitting high atop L.A.'s Sunset Boulevard.

Today, the house has been featured on multiple TV shows and films and is sometimes rented out for events. Recently, Stahl House Inc has partnered with furniture store Design Within Reach on a complete remodel of the iconic midcentury property. The collection will live in the home indefinitely. Want to re-create the ultimate midcentury home in your own space? Look no further than this timeless collection of modern classics.
