Taste Modern THE ROOM
A design-savvy couple curates a monstrous collection of curiosities. By Leilani Labong
These abstract Michael Sodeau ceramics are souvenirs from Dora Drimalas and Brian Flynn’s 1998 honeymoon in London. “I almost didn’t get them,” recalls Drimalas of the heart-inspired pieces. “but I knew I would regret that decision.”

The Charlie Harper bird prints in their dining room were purchased at the 2007 Palm Springs Modern show. Minutes later, the couple, who own Hybrid Design, also discovered they had acquired their 1959 midcentury-modern home in Twin Peaks.
The couple found a set of rare Russel Wright Iroquois dinnerware in a thrift store in Paint Rock, TX. “The white is impossible to find,” says Drimalas, who snagged the entire 12-piece set for the market value of a single plate—$50.
Flynn “geeks out” on Japanese monsters. This rare flesh-colored beast, part of a limited edition that was vibrantly painted before being imported from Japan, is a source of great pride. View more at the couple’s Japanese pop-culture shop, Super 7.
While the hanging George Nelson Bubble Lamp may upstage the more unassuming 1960s Laurel lamp (perched on the Kofod Larsen credenza), Drimalas practically beams when she speaks of the mod glow. “It’s got a great vintage,” she says.
