Pasadena Showcase House of Design 2014

Walker Zanger is happy to be participating in the 50th Anniversary of the Pasadena Showcase House of Design this year. We have been a participating vendor for the Pasadena Showcase House of Design for more than 20 years, and look forward to working with some of the best designers in Los Angeles each year as they transform a residence in the Pasadena area into a magnificent show piece.

This year’s Showcase House, known as the Flint House, was originally built for Robert Philip Flint and his wife Margaret Gray Flint, in 1915, in the English Arts and Crafts style.   In 1915, the 8,200 square-foot house featured 17 rooms and was built at a cost of $28,000.  Today, the house features seven bedrooms, including a nursery, a nanny’s room and a traveler’s suite, ten baths, five fireplaces, a media room, oak floors, redwood wall paneling, and floor to ceiling leaded glass windows.  The 3.5 acre wooded grounds feature 300 trees, a lily pond, a river-rock artesian spring house, a variety of lovely gardens, a pool and dressing rooms with fire pit, a greenhouse, a gardener’s potting shed and an outdoor kitchen.   In addition, there is a chauffeur’s suite complete with sitting area and kitchenette located above the carriage house.

Organizers expect over 35,000 people to tour the Showcase House this year, making it the most popular of its kind in the country.

Below are details and photographs of the rooms that we supplied material for.  We think the spaces turned out just great!

Carriage House

The carriage house interior rooms were designed by Dona Dockendorf of Tocco Finale. They feature products from our Jet Set, Rue Pierre, Duquesa and AnTeak collections.

Master Bathroom

The master bath is part of the Master Suite Wing, which was designed by Designs of the Interior (Genaro Lagdameo and Karen Shoener).  Featuring our just launched Tangent Collection, this space is a both dramatic and serene, a place where we would definitely love to start the day!


Tangent Collection patterns in this space are: Floor – Astral Nights, Shower – Zephyr, and the Tub Wall – Apex.



Tangent’s Astral Nights pattern adds repeating drama to the floor.



The shower is punctuated by a beautiful stripe of Cafe Bruno Marble.



The shower wall features Tangent “Zephyr” in Calacata.


Pool Dressing Rooms

The pool dressing rooms were designed by Robert Frank of Robert Frank Design. The design showcases products from our Shift and 6th Avenue collections to help create an airy and welcoming space.


The floor is Shift Collection White Stripe Mosaic, which is comprised of multiple stone textures.
