The Ford House

Edsel & Eleanor Ford House tells the story of the home life of a prominent American family.

The Designing of a Home

The couple's personal taste, as well as their work with design leaders such as architect Albert Kahn, landscape architect Jens Jensen, industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague, visionary artist Diego Rivera, among others, are wonderful examples of the quality design that was very much a part of their daily lives.

Edsel had an eye for design, whether it was in architecture, automobile design, or even fashion. He and Eleanor studied the arts, and their trips abroad included visits to galleries and art museums. Eleanor's flair for design could be seen in everything from her support of and participation in Edsel's work, to her choices in holiday and party decorations, and her carefully selected silver, china and crystal.

Edsel & Eleanor Ford House is an excellent example of how this commitment to design excellence touched every aspect of their lives.
