Maid’s room textile combination by Alexander Girard
Even the maid’s room at the Miller House was treated to Alexander Girard’s color-scheming genius. His textile design “Hexagon” for Herman Miller was printed in a custom color combination and used as curtains in the room. The bottom textiles were used for the bedspread. The textile on the bottom left, “Hennesex” by Greeff Fabrics, served as the bedspread cover, while the green & black Indian madras from Far Eastern Fabrics was used for the bedspread lining.
