Ideal Home Exhibition 1957

I’ve always wondered what the small badge on the front of the Trend House Catalog was all about and after some poking around today I managed to find out. In 1957 a model Trend House was built for the annual Ideal Home Exhibition in London England.

The model house has many of the signature elements that appear in our house – the vertical West Coast Cedar paneling, Cedar ceiling beams, Plywood cabinetry and open floor plan. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) took some great pictures documenting the interior and I’m hoping we can use this to help identify the interior furnishings.

Additionally, I managed to find some video footage of the house, as well as footage of the Queen touring through the house!
