Florence Knoll Bassett
If you don't know much about Florence Knoll Bassett, check out the fine article by Camille LeFevre in the College of Design's Emerging Magazine. The university bestowed an honorary degree on Knoll Bassett, calling her a "living embodiment of the mid-20th-century ideal of the design disciplines interacting and working together in fluid ways." Just glancing at the photo of the Florence Knoll settee accompanying the article makes me want to plunk one down in my living room. (Now only if I lived in a modern house instead of the 1890s sunless Victorian I currently occupy.)
