The 1900s on the block

September 20, 2008

IT MAY sound silly to call them 20th century decorative arts -- as though we're talking about some ancient era -- but the home furnishings in Bonhams & Butterfields auction Monday are expected to draw serious interest from hard-core collectors and recreational shoppers alike. Highlights include studio works from Ojai potter Otto Heino and Alta Loma wood master Sam Maloof and pieces from Southern California landmarks, including the Oviatt Building and a Richard Neutra home in Long Beach. You'll find a gallery of select lots at latimes.com/home.

Wrapped in U.S. tradition

THINK OF them as stories told in fabric and thread -- expressions of hope, fear, creativity and personal history. A quilts exhibition opening today at Bowers Museum in Santa Ana showcases more than 200 years of the craft in the U.S. For a preview of the show and commentary from curator Julie Lee, go to latimes.com/quilts.

Above it all in La Crescenta

In LA CRESCENTA'S Briggs Terrace, richly forested hillsides, dizzyingly steep streets and an active mountain lion population make it easy for residents to forget their secluded hamlet is a part of greater Los Angeles. But many can see downtown from their windows -- roughly 15 miles away and 1,800 feet below. Houses include a mix of small, cabin-style former vacation retreats, A-frames and newer, much larger contemporary homes. To read more about Briggs Terrace, which is profiled in Neighborly Advice, go to latimes.com/realestate.
