Eero Saarinen’s Miller Residence :: Conversation Pit // Love the idea of a conversation pit. This is my favorite modern house.
Conversation Pit (the Miller House - 1950's) Originally designed by modernist architect & designers to maximize space & horizon line of interiors. The sunken pit was the key modernistic point of the home. Very comfortable, relaxing & casual environment. I love this because it demonstrates consistency throughout his designs because similar design intentions as the womb chair! It's also a space that I could see myself hanging out in.

Hey Becca, maybe we could do this to the entire space of the living room? I'm joking... but only because that'd be impractical.

It's no secret that I am a little obsessed with 70s design. Of all the wild and wonderful ideas to come out of the 70s — shag carpeting! crazy graphics! green appliances! — my favorite is the crazy ways in which 70s designers redefined furniture: hanging things from the ceiling, creating weird conversational groupings that were half architecture, half couch, and even coming up with shapes and pieces that in no way resembled anything ever seen before. Here are some of the best (read: stranges...

The ConvoPit – Great, Fun Modern Design Had a heartbreakingly brilliant idea to research the Conversation Pit as a groovy Mid-Century interior design element. They were popular for hipsters and modern architects in the 60’s and 70’s, although, sadly, they seem pretty rare in the Googlesphere, at least in the high resolution pics that I favor. Had some trouble finding out the history of the Conversation Pit. Nothing on Wikipedia, for example. The Merriam-Webster dictionary has this nugget for us: conversation pit noun Definition of CONVERSATION PIT : a usu. sunken area (as in a living room) with intimate seating that facilitates conversation Another source said “a usually sunken portion of a room or living area with chairs, sofas, etc., often grouped around a fireplace, where people can gather to talk.” Wow. So there you have it. FU*****CK. Nothing much to hang our hats on. Perhaps more digging online or in architectural textbooks would yield some fruit. But not today. I guess we will have to rely on some simply smashing pictures to tell the story, and some brilliant editorial fireworks as filler. * * * OK, so much for the editorial fireworks. I like these rooms :). Well, part of the coolness is they ARE so rare, so different, so modern, so cool, so like, step into my Own-Personal-Mod-Pod. Seems sexy and so intimate, so elbow to elbow and hip to hip that you would only invite your best friends or family into the ConvoPit – not your co-workers or boss. No doubt you would be smoking something, drinking something, enjoying the cool company – maybe run out to the patio for a barbecue with your BBQ apron on and your very white bread chef hat, perhaps do some great suburban kabobs or layout a nice cheese fondue and munch out. Sweet Modness! Hell, let’s let the pictures speak for themselves. Hope you enjoy! Shine on! Braxton Great retro story Left Click to ZOOM Love the color here - 70's? Another great retroscape Seems very clean, Zen like- dig the shagadellic carpet Definitely 70's but hip Dig the mirrored ceiling Love the vibe here. Las Vegas cool. More sophisticated. Martinis for two A sunken room, NOT a conversation pit. No mojo here. A contemporary adaptation Miller House from another vantage point. Too Cool!
