Desert House

The extraordinary Desert House in Joshua Tree, California was built in the 1990s by the legendary Kendrick Bangs Kellogg, a proponent of organic architecture and disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. From 1994-2014, designer and craftsman John Vugrin worked almost exclusively on the house. Every aspect of the details of the from house, from furniture and fittings including a jaw-dropping spiraling table, to sculptural taps to spacecraft-like lamps, was created by John. It is a phenomenal showcase of the unassuming craftsman’s rare talent with just about any material, from marble to bronze via semi-precious stones – to even plumbing.
