In 2017, we’re celebrating 150 years since the birth of Frank Lloyd Wright. Almost everybody knows America’s most famous architect designed homes an buildings, but Wright’s furnishings are not as well know. The architect designed both built-in and freestanding furnishings both for his private residences and his public buildings.
For this article published by Art & Object, I interviewed a docent from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and also an architect who grew up in a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home near Minneapolis. The house had such an influence on the boy that as a young man he switched his major from pre-med (his father was a physician) to architecture. The home is now for sale, and the article includes a slide show allowing a peek inside this marvelous structure for which Wright designed almost all of the furnishings.
Have a look here.
