Farnsworth House is the ultimate modernist pavilion with its floor to ceiling glass and minimal structural framework. It was designed by Mies Van der Rohe and completed in 1951. It sits on a 55 acre site outside of Chicago and next to the Fox River. It was designed as a "get away" for the poet and physician Edith Farnsworth. Despite the buildings critical acclaim the structure proved impractical; constantly too hot or too cold, lacking in privacy and susceptible to flooding! We love the building and are very proud of our reproduction.

Address: 14520 River Rd, Plano, IL 60545, USA

Our model is produced in plaster and wood and displayed under an acrylic case.

Kevin Foy from Indianapolis, IN USA  October 25 2018
I just received my "Engine 55" Manhattan Fire Station... WONDERFUL!!! Great, great detail. Love it. My father was a Chicago Fire Department Battalion Chief, and I was literally raised in firehouses. This brings back such fantastic memories, and honors many great unsung heroes.... Thank you! This is my fourth Chisel & Mouse piece. It will not be my last.

Excellent service and prompt delivery. The goods are exactly as I had hoped. No hesitation in recommending this company. I will certainly return to but again

I would live to see a Vienna cityscape - and suggest the jugenstil architecture is worth a look. And for something a bit different, Hundertwasserhaus.

I was a little worried about shipping overseas, especially something this fragile and expensive. I had absolutely nothing to worry about. They double boxed it with packing foam. The model itself exceeded my expectations. Truly an amazing product and 10/10 would buy again

What a beautiful, detailed model. It'll get a place of honor in our apartment. I'd love to put together the whole collection. Really beautiful.
