The Monsanto House of the Future was an attraction at Disneyland built in 1957. The attraction featured a conceptualized home of the future from the year 1986. The house featured kitchen appliances such as microwaves (that had yet to be commonplace in most homes) The attraction was unfortunately torn down in 1967.

Below are some of the original concept sketches for the interior. You can see the influence of Charles and Ray Eames, Nelson, Miller, Knoll and others.

I love this fiberglass chair by designer Steen Ostergaard from the 1960’s.
