My wife and I spent the afternoon at the Huntington today, the last day of the exhibit. It was a kick that they had one of his chairs that you could sit in. Very comfortable.

I wonder what Sam would think to see a bunch of his chair patterns hanging on the wall in a museum?

The Huntington also has a Green & Green exhibit, including a large collection of furnishings from the Gamble house. They also have a Maloof rocker on permanent display.

Here’s some pictures that I took that show most of the collection:

MickeyD, (wife) along with Big_Bob also toured the museum and found that there just was not enough time to explore all the way Sam worked his wood. It was also a delight to see the different periods of time and what he created for each.

I believe Sam saw his patterns there several times before he went to the next level. A tour of his house is also a MUST DO!
