Author: Lind, Carla

Description: "If you've ever wanted to step inside a house designed by frank Lloyd Wright or if you've ever dreamed of living in one The Wright Style offers the next best thing: an extraordinary look inside dozens of Wright's incomparable houses, all of them filled with countless inspiring ideas from America's favorite architect. From "pure" Wright houses to homes where his decorative magic has been mixed with related styles, the book captures the essence of the architect's timeless designs the spaces, the textures, the colors, the light, the furniture, the special features that all say Frank Lloyd Wright. As the magnificent houses here show, each of Wright's buildings was a complex composition of many interrelated elements; he regarded them as symphonies.

Title: The Wright Style. The Interiors of Frank Lloyd Wright, Revised Edition (Soft Cover) (Published by Thanes & Hudson Ltd., London)

Author: Lind, Carla

Description: "Here is a breathtaking look at the endlessly popular works of Frank Lloyd Wright. This great American architect regarded his houses as symphonies, each composed as a beautiful whole down to the smallest detail. He 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. The Wright Style offers an extraordinary guided tour of more than forty houses, from Frank Lloyd Wright's own homes in Oak Park, Illinois, and at the two Taliesins in Wisconsin and Arizona, via classic residences such as the Fallingwater, Wingspread and Hollyhock houses, to the creations of a dozen other architects - including Rudolf Schindler, John Lautner and Fay Jones - who have continued the tradition in startling new ways. All of Wright's periods are represented, and the many colour illustrations show how present-day occupants harmonize and live with their glorious dwellings. A full catalogue of products lists items available today, from sofas and tables to rugs and wallpapers, that will help re-create the unique Wright ambience..."

PRINT STAND
   
Date: 2010

Title: Japanese Print Stand adaptation, 2010.

Description: In 1908 Wright loaned over two hundred prints to an extensive exhibition of Japanese Colour Prints, March 5-25, 1908, at The Art Institute of Chicago, entitled A Loan Exhibition of Japanese Colour Prints. The committee in charge, and major contributors, were Clarence Buckingham, Frederick W. Gookin, J. Clarence Webster and Frank Lloyd Wright. It was the largest exhibit of Ukiyo-e prints ever displayed in America. Wright designed the exhibition installation for the Art Institute. Included with the designs for the exhibition was a Japanese Print Easel or Stand. In November, 2010 my son-in-law, James C. Rust gave us a table top version of the Print Stand. Not having original plans to work with, he created a very accurate adaptation of the shorter table top Print Stand. Thirty-six inches in height, eight in width and twelve inches in depth, it is made of oak, stained with walnut, and coated with a satin finish. What once was an obscure two dimensional element, comes to life as a detailed three dimensional object illustrating the mind of Frank Lloyd Wright. Gift from James C. Rust. For more information see our Wright Study on the Japanese Print Stand.
