This spectacular custom bookcase was designed by Paul Laszlo (1900 - 1993) in the late 1930’s for his home in Beverly Hills, California. The curved red lacquer case sits on a conforming indented black lacquer base. Time Magazine called Laszlo “The Millionaire’s Architect” and he is known for designing interiors ranging from Bullock’s Wilshire to homes for Ronald Reagan, Gary Cooper and the Vanderbilts. He was also famous for rejecting clients such as Elizabeth Taylor and Barbara Streisand. The bookcase, which has been beautifully refinished, is 24” high, 74” long and 22” deep. The top is 9” wide.  Pictured in Ric Emmett's book, American Art Deco Furniture, 2015 on Pages 360-361.
