The Farnsworth House

Spring is here. Finally, we all can venture more freely outdoors, bask in the sunlight, and live with less. All these pleasures are encapsulated into the Farnsworth House by Mies Van der Rohe. This home is an iconic example of modern architecture that was built in 1951 along the banks of the Fox River in Plano, Illinois. It was the summer home of Dr. Edith Farnsworth, a Chicago-based physician. The way it floats, the way the walls blend with the environment, the lack of ornamentation is the closest thing to camping inside. It's one of our favorite things.
