Back in January, local modern auctioning company Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) announced it would be putting Frank Lloyd Wright's George D. Sturges home up for sale via an auction. The hillside residence, formerly owned by actor Jack Larson, was originally built in 1939 in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The simple structure, which experiments with horizontal lines and is made out of redwood and brick, is an examples of when Wright took a special interest in engineering, around the same time he designed Fallingwater.

However, despite the 1,200–square–foot residence being the only Usonian structure by the American architect in the area, it was not sold yesterday due to an apparent "lack of a qualified bidder," according to the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.

Interior goods were sold, however. According to Curbed's article, a pair of Origami lounge chairs made by Jack Lautner found a fitting bidder for $16,000 a piece. Lautner also renovated the home in the sixties.
