Landing on the market in March for $14,995,000, this Woodside home, designed by Memphis group founder Ettore Sottsass, languished on the market. Understandably so. A home this bold and beautiful doesn’t gel with the austere abodes, iPhone doppelgängers, popular with the freshly moneyed set.

Such a pity.

This sprawling circa-2000 home, built for IDEO chairman and co-founder David Kelley, features six pavilions connected by a glass atrium. each pavilion has a different shape and uses different material. Details include a barrel-vaulted home office and a combined kitchen-living-dining room broken up with a series of human-sized cabinets.

Featuring four beds, six and a half baths, and roughly 8,250 square feet, 1250 Cañada Road has dropped its price to $13,500,000.
