What is the Farnsworth House?
Interior and furnishing design provide a connection to the landscape outside. As a result, it’s an icon of modernist architecture.
“Realizing that his trees appeal to modernists, Bliss had the trees photographed inside many classic 1950’s and ’60s homes. These homes needed to have dramatic glass exteriors so that the trees can be seen glowing from within. These homes include the 1951 Farnsworth House, holding designs by Mies van der Rohe, in Plano, Illinois and the Sculptured House. Architect Charles Deaton finished designing the home in 1963, in Genesee, Colorado. As shown above, the trees also make an appearance in the Stahl House in the Hollywood Hills. This home is known to architects and historians as Case Study House #22. It holds designs by Pierre Koenig and was named for his client, Buck Stahl.”- Architectural Digest article Making The Christmas Tree Modern
