Back in 1957, architect Eero Saarinen, designer Alexander Girard, and landscape architect Dan Kiley collaborated on a house and 14-acre estate in Columbus, Indiana, for the industrialist J. Irwin Miller and his wife, Xenia. The result was one of the finest works of American Modernism: a house that’s as emblematic of the era as a great Sinatra song–and as ageless, too. After Mrs. Miller died in 2008, the property was acquired by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which has meticulously restored the interiors and gardens, and will open them to the public in May. Here’s a preview of this fabulous piece of residential architecture, decorating, and landscaping.
