Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin Barrel 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 Taliesin Barrel Chair was designed for Wright's own home in Wisconsin. A simple shape, the cylinder, is given a refined originality that appeals to the eye and mind from every angle. Equally appropriate as a modern lounge chair or modern dining chair, it's a pleasure to look at and to use. The wood chair is executed in solid cherry, and can be ordered in two finish types, lighter Parkton Cherry and darker Natural Cherry. The Taliesin Barrel Chair is available with a wide-ranging choice of fabric and leather colors for the seat cushion upholstery: so you can color-key it to be an inviting presence in any room.
