In 1990, the Sam Maloof residence and woodshop were deemed eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Today the relocated residence is open as a living museum. Once again, each room is filled with treasures that give this unique home its spirit.The Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation, established in 1994, is committed to creating a pre-eminent center that preserves the Maloof's legacy and fosters the arts and crafts movement. The work of the Foundation recognizes the ever increasing role of the crafts in our world of machine-made products - the reconnecting of human values with natural forms and materials.A principal responsibility of the Foundation is protection and conservation of the art, furnishings, structures and grounds entrusted to it. The residence itself is one of the most treasured parts of the collection.
