We're all looking forward to cf3's first-ever road trip to Columbus, Ind., and private tour of Eero Saarinen-designed home for J. Irwin Miller and family. Design and construction on the Miller House took four years and was completed in 1957.The home was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2000.The Miller family owned the home until 2008 when Xenia Miller, the last resident of the home, died. In 2009, the home and gardens, along with many of the original furnishings, were donated to the Indianapolis Museum of Art by members of the Miller family. In addition to Eero Saarinen, the house and gardens showcases the work of leading 20th-century figures such as interior designer Alexander Girard, landscape architect Dan Kiley, and principal design associate at the Saarinen office, Kevin Roche.
