The Wright Style The Interiors of Frank Lloyd Wright
Here is a breathtaking look at the endlessly popular works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright’s influence on twentieth-century architecture and design was immense. His ideas pervade our domestic environments, seamlessly integrated into the fabric of everyday life. This volume enables us to recapture in its original unity one of the most significant interior design styles of the modern age. Wright shaped not just the shell, but everything that went with it: furniture, skylights, art glass windows, light fixtures, textiles, carpets, murals, decorative accessories, even the surrounding landscape, embodying his fundamental principles of organic architecture – simplicity and integrity, unity, natural materials and finishes. The Wright Style offers an extraordinary tour of more than forty houses, from Lloyd Wright’s own homes, via classic residences such as Fallingwater, Wingspread, and Hollyhock house, to the creations of a dozen other architects – including Rudolph Schindler, John Lautner and Fay Jones – who continued the tradition in startling new ways. A full catalogue of products lists items available today, from sofas and rugs to tables and dinnerware, that will help recreate the unique Wright ambience.
