The Maloof Experience

 

The Maloof is an extraordinary place to refresh and renew. We’re grateful for our beautiful surroundings, and enjoy sharing them with others. Here is some information to help you plan your visit:

  • HOME TOURS:   Special COVID Protocol Docent Led Tours of the Historic House - approx. 50 minutes. 6 guests maximum. Masks and Social Distancing Required

    • Docent-led tours welcome visitors to the mid-20th century home of Sam and Alfreda Maloof, housing the world’s largest collection of furniture designed and crafted by woodworker Sam Maloof. The tour follows the famous craftsman’s story as a son of immigrants who rises to global fame as the maker of exquisite California Modernist furniture. The Maloof Historic Home, which evolved during more than half a century of occupancy by the woodworker and his family, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and regarded by many as Maloof’s most important work of art. Rooms display a selection of paintings, drawings, ceramics, and textiles by artists of the Pomona Valley, Southwest, Mexico, and America's studio craft movement. 

      • Special COVID-protocol tours operate at 50% capacity, limited to only six guests per tour. Face masks and social distancing are required, with HEPA and ultraviolet filters providing enhanced air circulation in indoor spaces.

      • House Tours last approximately fifty minutes, interior and exterior, with Gallery, Discovery Garden and Upper Barn workshop recommended for viewing before or after.

  • DISCOVERY GARDEN: The drought-tolerant, water-wise Maloof Discovery Garden presents 375 species of trees, shrubs and grasses, including plants used by Native Americans in traditional food, medicine and basketry. Discover works by more than a dozen California artists and sculptors whose works are currently on display in the Discovery Garden.

  • GIFTS: The Maloof Store features books, jewelry, toys, garden accessories and gifts, including original art and selections from the Sam Maloof Woodworker accessory collection. Up to two shoppers will be allowed into the store at a given time, and some merchandise may be ordered online for home delivery. The store accepts payment only via credit and debit cards. No check or cash transactions, please.

  • GALLERY: Artists' Hands exhibition open May 8.

The exhibition A Thriving Artist Community profiles 48 artists of the Inland Empire region, photographed in their own homes and studios. Many of the artists have been spotlighted in The Maloof’s weekly Artist Talk videoconference series, available on demand on The Maloof’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
