868 9th Street: Who Else Wants a New Construction in the Hill Section?

It was the mellow atmosphere of the Hill Section in Manhattan Beach that convinced a custom home developer Saeid Shokravi to go ahead with this voluminous new five-bedroom home and inspired its plantation-influenced modern look. The result is a residence ideally suited for life as it’s lived today, with sophistication and user-friendliness locked in neatly together.

IKEA Tiny House: Small Space, Big Style

Since its debut in 1943, IKEA has been a pioneer. At that time, its founder, Ingvar Kamprad, was only 17 years old. He started the company with a small sum of money that his dad rewarded him for doing well in school. He chose the name IKEA as an abbreviation of Ingvar Kamprad from Elmtaryd (the family farm), Agunnaryd (the nearby village, located in southern Sweden). The rest is history.
