The Wright Stuff.

rank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in modern Western architecture. His radically innovative designs, utilizing a building style based on natural forms, termed by Wright as organic architecture, have stamped him as "the greatest American architect of all time."

Frank Lloyd Wright was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin, June 8, 1867 and died on April 9, 1959. It is a measure of his passion and commitment to his field that he continued working right up to the time of his death.

Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright spent more than 70 years creating designs that revolutionized the art and architecture of this century. Many innovations in today's buildings are products of his imagination. In all he designed 1141 works - including houses, offices, churches, schools, libraries, bridges, museums and many other building types. Of that total, 532 resulted in completed works, 409 of which still stand. However, Wright's creative mind was not confined to architecture. He also designed furniture, fabrics, art glass, lamps, dinnerware, silver, linens and graphic arts. In addition, he was a prolific writer, an educator and a philosopher.

The use of art glass in the Dana-Thomas House, (Springfield, Illinois, 1902) is the most complete and lavish of Wright's career. Specially prepared panels were used in the suspended lamps, wall sconces and table lamps throughout the house as well as in the stained glass windows of the house and gallery. Wright himself admitted, some fifty years after these works were done, that of all his glass designs, those of the Dana-Thomas House were by far the most resplendent, as well as the most costly.

The Single Pedestal Table Lamp includes one 60W vanity bulb. Dimensions: Height - 16 - Shade - 18 width - Base - 7 x 6 x 11.

Frank Lloyd Wright originally created this wooden table lamp for the interior of his own home, Taliesin, and placed several of them throughout the rooms. A shaft engaged in a solid base supports a square shade, almost a miniature roof, evocative of a small building, itself inside Taliesin. These lamps were so well liked by Wright's clients that he would frequently specify them for use in other homes of his design.
