The only museum in the United States devoted to historic and contemporary design, the Cooper Hewitt holds more than 217,000 pieces—from furniture to prints to textiles. One-of-a-kind and mass-produced items are culled from international sources and range from 17th-century Japanese tsuba (sword fittings) to funky 20th-century American wall coverings.

Founded in 1897 by Amy, Eleanor and Sarah Hewitt, the granddaughters of industrialist Peter Cooper, the museum is located in a landmark building, a 64-room mansion that is the former home of industrial pioneer Andrew Carnegie. It was the first private house to have a structural steel frame and one of the first homes to have both central air-conditioning and heating. Seeing the works in the setting of what feels like a 19th-century manor is part of the Cooper Hewitt experience.

A three-year renovation, completed in December 2014, added 60 percent more exhibit space and a full floor dedicated to exhibitions from the permanent collection.
