One of my favorite tv shows is CBS Sunday Morning and yesterday, they featured the Miller House in Columbus, Indiana which totally blew me away so I just had to share it here.
Designed by Eero Saarinen for the industrialist J. Irwin Miller and his family, the house was completed in 1957 and occupied by the Miller family until 2008. The house was then donated to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, along with most of the original furnishings.
Conversation pit aside, look how fresh the design looks 50+ years later!
Interior designer Alexander Girard designed many of textiles specifically for the home.
The house is now open to the public for tours and if I were anywhere in the area, I’d be there in a heartbeat!
I also found this video:
It just goes to show great design never goes out of style.
