Walker Zanger is happy to again be participating in the Pasadena Showcase House this year. Each year we look forward to working with some of Los Angeles County’s most talented designers as they completely renovate a historic home in the Pasadena area. Walker Zanger is proud to have participated in the Pasadena Showcase House for over 25 years.
The 2015 Showcase House was originally built in 1910 by French architect Ferdinand Parmentir. The house is unique because it was built as an English Tudor home with many strong Craftsman elements. The main house is 9,400 square feet with gardens, spa, pool, outdoor barbeque area and an attached carriage house. The carriage house is 2,600 square feet with an upstairs apartment. The renovation took place in a break neck pace and was completed in 90 days! The result is a stunning Showcase House featuring the latest and greatest in interior design and furnishings, including Walker Zanger Tile in multiple rooms!
The main kitchen of the Pasadena Showcase House 2015 was designed by Ederra Design Studio. It uses shades of white and gray inspired by its traditional craftsman roots. The kitchen features our new Robert A.M. Stern Collection on the kitchen backsplash. Our Nature porcelain is on the floor; a porcelain tile that has the appearance of hard wood but is very durable and easy to maintain. Our honed limestone Basaltina is featured on the main countertop and the marble Statuary Grigio on the island.
Jennifer Bevan Interiors designed the library and its bathroom, which features our Sterling Row Derby in Charcoal on its floor; a mosaic that combines marble and porcelain. The sink is made from a slab of Calacata Borghini.
Carriage House Guest Suite
The carriage house kitchen, dining room and bathroom were designed by GH Wood Design. They feature selections from our Tilt, Statale, Sterling Row, Acustico and Villa d’Oro collections. Our stone mosaic Villa d’Oro contributed to the Guest Suite’s Updated Traditional, incorporating both classic and modern elements.
