Saarinen House

Saarinen's philosophy is evident in Saarinen House and its garden, whose design, furnishings, and decoration were a collaborative effort of the entire Saarinen family--Eliel, who designed the house and much of its furniture and other objects, Loja, who designed the textiles and helped design the garden, son Eero, and daughter Pipsan--as well as many master artisans at Cranbrook. More than forty years later, in the course of the restoration, false walls were removed, layers of paint were stripped away to reveal original color schemes, long-lost furnishings were recovered, textiles were rewoven, and ceramic tile was cleaned.
