Frank Lloyd Wright Heurtley Spindle Back 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.
The young Wright was very proud of the Heurtley house, calling it "one of my best" at the time of its building, and we think his feelings show in the Frank Lloyd Wright Heurtley Spindle Back Chair he created for its living areas, then later had in his own home, Taliesin. The generous width, the mix of straight lines in the horizontals and the back's long spindles, descending all the way to the rear leg rail, with smoothly exuberant curves in the arms, feet, and arc of the back, is delightful. Every part is hardwood, either solid quartersawn white oak or solid cherry being used for the construction of this modern lounge chair. The deep, tufted seat cushion may be ordered in either leather or fabric, the back pillow in fabric, in a wide range of colors. The Heurtley Spindle Back Chair is available in 2 finish colors.
