Not long ago my sister and I had the absolute pleasure of visiting Columbus,Indiana with the good people of Monogram. No that is not a typo. I too thought that Monogram was taking some designers on a trip to Columbus, Ohio but we were all to polite to question. As it turns out a remarkable midcentury masterpiece lay in South central Indiana. A couple by the name of Irwin and Xenia Miller commissioned their home to be built and designed by a leading Finnish architect Eero Saarinen.

The Millers house features a flat roof with overhanging eaves, walls that incorporate large expanses of glass and monumental stone slabs, flowing interior spaces and floors that extend seamlessly to exterior terraces. We were blown away.The Miller house was designated a national historic landmark in 2000. Enjoy the photos!
