Rudolph Schindler designed two residences for Beata Inaya, neither of which was ever built. However, he did produce a suite of furniture for her as part of a remodelling project, and the twelve pieces comprising that suite are currently in the collection of the How House, Los Angeles. Schindler also produced another set of eight chairs for Inaya, the only surviving examples of which are offered here.
