    Exterior Overview of Classic Home 055, Jennings F. Sutor House, by Pietro Belluschi, Architect.

    This house for a bachelor who entertains often sits on a hillside with a commanding view, against a background of tall firs and cedars. The wood-frame house is finished inside with white sand-floated plaster. A large section over and around fireplace is covered with zebra flexwood. The ceiling of the entry hall is made of woven fir slats 1/8 inch (3.2 millimeters) thick and 2-1/2 inches (6.4 millimeters) wide. The floor covering is straw matting from the South Sea Islands. The rest of the oak floors have large light-apple-green rugs. The wall between the entry and living room is covered with gold Japanese straw paper to form a background for a Chinese painting. One wall of the entry hall has large vertical-grain fir panels left in their natural color.

    From Classic Modern Homes of the Thirties, by James Ford and Katherine Morrow Ford, originally published as "The Modern House in America," copyright 1940. The 1989 edition is published by Dover Publications, ISBN 0-486-25927-7.
