This is the living room of the Miller House, recently acquired by the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
With textiles by Alexander Girard and furniture by Eero Saarinen, I love how it blends the modern with the exotic (jonesing over those pillows, not to mention that sunken conversation pit! I mean, doesn’t everyone want one of those?)
The other reasons to visit Indiana are my cousin Aimless and an apparent glut of fabulous mid-century modern furniture available for pennies at thrift stores and flea markets throughout the state. (Aimless was kind enough to send me this excellent table:
but, after the joys — NOT — of wrapping it and shipping it to me via Greyhound, she’s decided that in the future I need to haul my ass out there and do it myself.)
Feels like it’s time for a road trip!
