Property An 18th-floor apartment in a 1970s Bauhaus-style block in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with a large open kitchen/dining/living area, a glassed-in balcony, one double bedroom and bathroom.

There is a contrast in style between modern items and eclectic finds from around the world. The wooden coffee table is the step to an antique opium bed, and behind the sofa is an Indian carved lintel door frame.
