Groovin' on Alexander Girard

Alphabet Blocks A recent fixation on this super cool set of alphabet blocks originally designed for the San Francisco MOMA has lead to a mini-obsession with Alexander Girard, famed designer for Herman Miller and collaborator of Charles and Ray Eames (and, of course, muse to our most favorite boy wonder, Jonathan Adler)...

Neuhart Dolls

We love these hand-made dolls, designed exclusively for House Industries by Marilyn Neuhart.  They are based on dolls she sewed for the opening of Girard's Textiles & Objects Shop in New York City in 1961.  How hilarious is that lion?  We adore the folk art inspired motifs...

Nativity Figurines

Alexander Girard amassed a huge collection of nativities, most of which he spent the last years of his life curating for his wing at the International Museum of Folk Art in Santa Fe (which is absolutely amazing!). This set is based on an original Girard illustration that hangs in his son's house.


House Industries also has a series of great Girard fonts (Girard inspired wedding invitations or birth announcements perhaps?!).
