Charles Arnoldi’s Malibu beach house, the ultimate artist’s canvas

Armoldi Gallery
A clean simplicity rules the Malibu home of artist Charles Arnoldi and wife, Katie, a novelist. He designed the house as well as most of its furniture, including an aluminum dining table topped with a small Calder sculpture. Arnold Schwarzenegger liked the table so much that he commissioned one for himself, Charles says. Outside the window is the silhouette of an aloe tree, backed by a sunset over the Pacific.
