The Miller House

Happy mid-May to you! Time is flying and I've not been here much. But I saw The Miller House on The North Elevation today and I had to post about it too. The Indianapolis Museum of Art has just opened it to the public. This is a must-see for me...Designed in the early 1950s for J. Irwin Miller in an amazing collaboration by Eero Saarinen, Alexander Girard and Dan Kiley, it is a modernist masterpiece. I, for one, am thankful to the Miller family and the Indianapolis Museum of Art for letting us in. Do go visit The North Elevation, The Indianapolis Museum of Art and Dwell for more.

Photos from the Indianapolis Museum of Art and by Leslie Williamson for Dwell. All found thanks to The North Elevation.

So interesting, Liza! It is wonderful that it is so well preserved. All those great details & fabric swatches. Amazing! Maybe when in Boston you might have a chance to see the modernist enclave in Lincoln Ma. Also interesting!
