Frank Lloyd Wright Dana-Thomas Large Arm Chair
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was America's pioneer of modern architecture, whose influence on European modernists and generations of US architects has been incalculable. He broke with Victorian tradition about 1900 to create the Prairie Style, the origin of millions of modern American house designs. He brought Organic Architecture to fruition in the 1920s-30s, basing structures on natural forms and producing buildings -- like "Fallingwater" in Pennsylvania and the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan -- that are at one with their outdoor environments. A brilliant designer of furniture, textiles, stained glass, and interior detail, he always presented his clients with a completely integrated concept, from the building itself right through to the light fixtures and the rug patterns.
Copeland Furniture is the exclusive licensee of Wright's furniture designs. Each piece of Frank Lloyd Wright® Furniture by Copeland is named after the house for which he designed it, and bears Wright’s signature, date of manufacture, and a unique serial number.
This authoritative modern dining chair was intended by Wright to combine with the matching table In the grand dining room of the house that he created for hostess Susan Dana. The Dana-Thomas Large Arm Chair and equally tall-backed side chairs are designed to surround the table to create a convivial "room within a room" feeling for seated diners. But even when not in use, the solid wood chair is a pleasure to look at, every strong, graceful touch contributing to the whole -- and with the table it produces harmonies of form and dimension. The slightly slanted back verticals promote relaxation, the thick, tailored seat cushion promotes comfort. The Frank Lloyd Wright Dana-Thomas Large Arm Chair is entirely constructed in either quartersawn oak or cherry, using fine carpentry techniques. Each wood is available in 2 different finishes, and the cushion may be ordered in either fabric or leather in a wide range of colors.
