Earl Wear / Topanga Canyon

Anderson House by W. Earl Wear (1958)

Canadian architect W. Earl Wear (1925-2011) moved to Los Angeles in the early 1950s and only designed nine homes. In 1954 he settled in Topanga Canyon, where this incredible house is.

It's home to ceramicist and designer Beatrice Faverjon and architectural preservationist, consultant and designer Ryan Soniat.

Much of the furniture was designed by Wear and is original to the house. The chair is by Don Shoemaker.

The attention to detail and craftsmanship is phenomenal.

Ryan reproduced the window hardware.

Wear designed the studio in 1964.

Beatrice's ceramic studio. Her work is beautiful.
