Designer Russel Wright (1904 to 1976) revolutionized the American home through his contribution of inexpensive, mass produced dinnerware, furniture, appliances, and textiles.
His home, studio, and woodland garden - collectively called Manitoga - are located in Garrison, NY. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a World Monuments Watch Site. It is one of the few 20th century modern homes open to the public in New York State.
Here we speak with Allison Cross, the Executive Director of Manitoga.
