This is the only known image of the house that David Runnells designed for Modern Home Builder, Don Drummond's personal use. Don loaned me this 8x10 transparency film for me to scan. He told me that some photographers, possibly from House Beautiful, were in town to shoot another of his projects and they shot this one image on their lunch break while Francie made them a meal. Notice that almost all of the tables and chairs were by high end, classic-modern designer, T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings. The one notable exception is the coffee table by Isamu Noguchi. Don Drummond Jr. said that his mother made a special trip to New York to buy all of this furniture. Most of the furniture and the painting of seagulls were in the Drummond home when we visited him in California a few years ago. In fact, he sat in the white chair to the far left almost the entire time we were there. This image is one of my favorite finds in my quest to uncover the story about Don Drummond and David Runnells.

Bedroom - After Cure 2

Bedroom - After Cure 2

As you can see, I don't have a bedframe yet. I might not have the time to go to Montreal and pick it up before the end of the Cure, but I can tell you it's going to be a MALM bedframe, with the attached side tables in the oak veneer color. I will put a white rug underneath and Noguchi lamps on the side tables. I'll also add pillows and maybe change the color and texture of the bedspread. The only thing I still haven't figured out is the art I'll put over it.
