8662152_orig

This Sunday, you have the rare opportunity to tour one of Seattle’s most iconic homes: the Evert Södergren Studio House in Matthews Beach on Lake Washington which hit the market yesterday for $1.7 million. Five bed, three bath, and a floating spiral staircase that leads to a workshop that supplied pieces to The Smithsonian. Södergren was a master woodworker, furniture, and cabinet maker; best known for his Sculptured Chair, which was first designed in 1953 and added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in 2004.  This weekend the public has the chance to tour his lakefront home and studio, which many say was the birthplace of Pacific Northwest Regionalism.
