LongHouse Reserve is a place for “living with art in all it’s forms.” Designed, curated and founded by the great textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen, the estate and gardens stimulate every sense. Larsen’s textiles were favorites of Marcel Breuer, Louis Kahn and Frank Lloyd Wright. The Reserve is his personal home that showcases his worldly art collection and love of gardens. Larsen has generously opened the grounds to the public so that they may inspire a creative life to all who visit.
