The Ultimate Fixer Upper: Furnishing Fair Lane
While Ford House is filled with original furnishings, Fair Lane, Home of Clara & Henry Ford has virtually none. Historians there are working to find exact replacements for the the furniture and decorative pieces in the century-old home.
How do they find just the just the right items? Collections & Furnishings Specialist John Kingsley will share his experience with heritage site restorations and refurnishing and how to find the pieces necessary to re-create the Fords’ home.
