Saarinen Wire

NYC designer Deborah Berke walked The Wall Street Journal through the oblique genius of Eero Saarinen's Miller House, explaining how the landmarked home's living room reflects Saarinen's "slow burn" aesthetic. Her tips? Use materials "from rosewood and gold silk to red tea paper ... A loud gesture reads somewhat restrained because of the design's modularity." More advice, summarized by the WSJ: "get down with sunken seating." Because duh. [WSJ; previously]
