HOUSE BEAUTIFUL
 




The Dining Room
Date: 1897

Title: House Beautiful - February 15, 1897 (Digital) Published monthly by Klapp & Company, Chicago)

Author: Anonymous

Description: "Successful Houses. III. How often does the architect, while creating the most beautiful effects for others, attain a satisfactory result in his own house? The mind which can plan and originate for a living, seems inadequate when it comes to planning for pleasure alone. Though often good enough as far as mere laying out of rooms goes, the homes of many architects, which naturally should be demonstrations in taste are uninteresting, commonplace and lacking in originality, Why this is so is difficult to say... As recent impressions of the house of Mr. Frank Wright at Oak Park are very strong it will serve as an example of the exception. Here is a case where nothing has been done hastily or carelessly, and every room has been arranged with the intention of obtaining a complete composition..." Includes five photographs of Wright’s Oak Park Home. (Note: These are some of the earliest images of Wright’s home on record.) (Sweeney 26)

Size: 6.25 x 9.5

Title: House Beautiful - December 1899 (Digital) (Published monthly by Herbert S. Stone & Company, Chicago)

Author: Granger, Alfred H.

Description: "An Architects Studio. When one attempts to describe almost any modern building, the first question to be asked is, ‘What style?’ ...One of the most radical of these opponents is Mr. Frank L. Wright, whose house and studio I have the privilege of describing... One’s first impression of the dinning-room is its simplicity – no rugs, no curtains, and only the necessary furniture, which, however, is in perfect harmony with the room. One entire end of the room opposite the fireplace is practically of glass, laid in leading of a very delicate design, which was evidently inspired by the lotus flower. The harmony of color between the brown and the red is perfect, and is accentuated (if one can accentuate a harmony) by the color of the walls and ceiling, which are covered with arras of a soft brown, and which give to the entire room a golden tone such as one sees in a rich sunset. In the center of the ceiling is a design of exquisite tracery, through which at night a soft light filters, and gives to the whole room a warm, rich glow. Includes 11 photographs and illustrations.

Description: “One Man’s House.  We give much lip service to two architectural principles: That a man’s house should be a personal expression and that it should take its place naturally in the landscape.  Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and workshop in Arizona really does both.  The result is beautiful, exciting and very hard to explain.”  All photographs by Maynard Parker.  Includes 31 photographs.  Original cover price 35c. (Sweeney 661) Description: 1) “The most influential design source of the last 50 years.”  “The effect of any genius is seldom seen in his own time.  But the case of Frank Lloyd Wright is different...”  Includes portrait by Yousuf Karsh. Original cover price 35c.  (Sweeney 670) Description: 2) “What inspired House Beautiful?  Like most institutions that outlive their originators, House Beautiful was stared as a crusade.  Our birth was influenced by six widely-reprinted sermon-essays entitled ‘The House Beautiful,’ written by William C. Gannett in 1895, and printed in 1896 in a deluxe, edition designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.”  Includes two photographs by Fred Lerner of the cover and inside spread of The House Beautiful. Original cover price 35c. Description: 3) “America Did it First. Frank Lloyd Wright designed this house in 1903. Opposite you’ll see its influence on Modern today...” The caption reads “Home of Mr. And Mrs. T.H. Goodspeed, Grand Rapids, Michigan”. Wright claimed this home as one of his designed, the David M. Amberg House (1909). Amberg was Meyer May's father-in-law.  In Storrer’s early editions he lists it as S.166. A design for the Amberg House was published in the Western Architect of October 1913 under Von Holst's name, with Marion M. Griffin listed as Associate. Also see “Frank Lloyd Wright, His Life and His Architecture” Twombly 1979, Pp 160-2.  Includes three photographs. Original cover price 35c.

Title: House Beautiful - Aug 1948 (Published monthly by the Hearst Corp., New York)

Author: Pope, Loren

Description: Pope Residence. "The Love Affair of a Man and His House. This story of what a modern house means to its owner came to house beautiful unsolicited. We held it for more than a year before we decided to be brave enough to publish it. We say brave because it will make a lot of our readers very angry. But since it is true that the house is so much more then a shelter, we think people ought to know about it. (Pope:) For six years we lived in a truly modern house, designed and built for us by Frank Lloyd Wright, the world’s greatest Architect and one of its greatest man. And because there are many people to whom honest, organic architecture is and uncertain venture, we want to tell what it has meant to us. What we have found is this: it is the only kind of house fit for man to live in. It is not expensive. It is the best kind of home investment. It is far and away the most practical. It is the only kind that has anything to offer the spirit and finally, the lending public is way behind the buying public in its standard judgment of what kind of house is desirable in valuable..."

Description: "How Fresh and Fitting Is the Furniture of Frank Lloyd Wright in Traditional Rooms. There is a warmth, richness and dignity in traditional furniture that we cannot – and should not – give up. Yet there is often a time when we should welcome the change, freshening up, as it were, of our rooms, if it did not mean sacrificing all these fine, traditional values in the process. Here, we believe, you can see the virtual miracle of the furniture of the world’s greatest modern designer at ease, at home, yet always itself, in an atmosphere field with the familiar furniture of the past. Might one say these pieces by Frank Lloyd Wright – the chests, the tables, the open shelves – seem to bring more life, more warmth, more richness and interest to the traditional pieces then they had had without them..." Includes two photographs of
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Heritage-Henredon designed furniture in traditional living rooms. (Sweeney 1115)
