Greta Magnusson Grossman, the great 20th-century Swedish designer behind the iconic Grasshopper and Cobra lamps, also practiced as an architect. While most of Grossman's built works were in Southern California, where she passed away in 1999 at age 93, she did complete one house in Europe: a splendid Swedish villa which, according to Wowhaus, is now on the market for about $827K. The 1959-built house covers 1,460 square feet, and features a roughly L-shaped open-plan living and kitchen area that leads to three bedrooms on one wing.

The well-maintained home offers extensive glass walls, soaring ceilings, and clerestory windows, all common features of California modernism that in turn create an airiness often associated with Scandinavian homes. Of course, all the dreamy curtains definitely help the vibe! The kitchen, delightfully retro and colorful, is also especially a looker.
