Updated: May 10, 2020

Genius and gorgeous- how's that for alliteration? Two adjectives synonymous with Eichler homes. Who is Joseph Eichler? Let us explain. Joseph Eichler was a real estate developer with a knack for modern architecture influences from Frank Lloyd Wright, a famous architect known for creating some of the most iconic landmarks, specifically the famous Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania or New York's Guggenheim Museum. Eichler's vision for modern mid-century design revolutionized the interior and architecture industry, as result, these homes are one of the most sought after. You can find most Eichlers in sunny California and a few in New York.

-An open floor plan layout

-Small windows facing the street

-Center courtyard

-Roofed atrium

- Living spaces located in rear of the home

- Posts and beams construction

- Wood entrances, exteriors and paneling

Interior design for these types of homes are effortless. The architecture alone is breathtaking and interior design only accentuates the Eicher features. Decor can consist of mixing the old with the new including furniture with clean lines, lots of natural wood and influences from the 50's and 60's. Gold and brass tones add hints of modern. #swaganddwell
