Erik Lindström, the creative force behind one of L.A.’s most popular high-end rug boutiques is selling his home — an exquisite contemporary house in Venice, California with a swoon-worthy rooftop deck.

Priced at $3,750,000, the three-bedroom home has recently hit the market, with The Agency’s founders Mauricio Umansky and Farrah Brittany in charge of the listing.

Reflecting Lindström’s impeccable taste, the Venice house stands out with its flawless design and polished interiors, as well as its focus on sustainable space planning. The architecturally distinct home was designed by Erla Dogg Ingjaldsdottir and Tryggvi Thorsteinsson of the award-winning design studio Minarc, with Lisa Strong designing the impeccable interiors.

An elegant, open living space with a dual-sided fireplace

The great room offers a chic, open space to entertain with its most striking feature coming in the form of a double-sided, floor-to-ceiling fireplace that divides the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

With statement brass light fixtures, a long built-in credenza, and a dark accent wall, the dining room presents a fresh take on formality. The living area is set against a wall of glass with magnificent views. The Poliform kitchen beckons gourmet cooking with a burgundy marble backsplash set against a custom gray cabinetry, and also features a built-in gas range and an island with bar seating.

Bedroom is an oasis of tranquility

With a calming, neutral color palette and walls of glass that open up to nature views, bringing plenty of natural light in, the main bedroom was designed to invite calm and relaxation. Both the main bedroom and the gorgeous guest suite have dual brass light fixtures that hang low on both sides of the bed.

To complete the retreat-like setting, the bedroom leads into an open spa-like bathroom which features a gold tinted mirror.
