PAVILION
OF AMERICAN
INTERIORS
The world of home furnishings is on display in this circular, four-story building with two turretlike wings. More than 120 manufacturers and a number of interior designers are represented in exhibits dealing with everything that goes into a house: furniture, fabrics, floor coverings, paints, tableware, decorations and lighting. Among the features are 14 integrated room settings, each of which reflects a distinctive way of life in a different region of the United States. Other exhibits feature unusual uses of wood, displays of crafts, and showings of award-wining furniture design. There is a restaurant.
* Admission: 50 cents; children under 12, free.
 
Highlights
 
REGIONAL LIVING. In the 14 furnished rooms, New York City is represented by a penthouse living room. Chicago by the dining room of a remodeled carriage house, and so on. Co-sponsors of the display are Du Pont and the American Institute of Interior Designers.
PRIZE-WINNING DESIGNS. Among the prize-winning pieces of furniture is a walnut cabinet, for high-fidelity equipment or storage use, which won first prize in the "Design for Better Living" contest sponsored in schools and colleges by the pavilion and the Fine Hardwoods Association. Also on display are 20 winning designs from the American Institute of Interior Designers' annual awards.
