Inspired by her reading of George Nelson and Henry Wright’s 1945 book “Tomorrow’s House,” Betty Price began working with Nelson in 1947 on various projects related to her family’s gift and luggage business in Lansing, Michigan. Their first project together was the renovation of the lower floor of 107 Washington, which featured a modular shelving system similar to the component system Nelson developed for Herman Miller. In the early 1960s, Nelson was asked to design a new location for Liebermann’s Gift Store, which opened at 113 Washington in 1965. Nelson and his associate Robert Fymat developed a close collaboration with Betty and her husband, Don Price, working for three years on the design of 113 Washington. In 1972, Nelson renovated the façade and interior of Liebermann’s Luggage Store at 107 Washington Street.
