The Gamble House

Pasadena, California, USA

America’s finest example of the architecture and decorative arts of the Arts & Crafts movement, the Gamble House was designed in 1908 by architects Charles and Henry Greene. Located near Los Angeles, in Pasadena, California, the Gamble House was built as a winter home for the family of David and Mary Gamble (Procter & Gamble), whose heirs gave the house to the City of Pasadena in 1966 with its architect-designed furnishings. Featuring exquisite craftsmanship in wood, and a design that envisioned abundant outdoor living (even sleeping!), the house and gardens stand as a paradigm of architecture as fine art.
