Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin Storage Ottoman
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.
Wright's country house/studio in Wisconsin, Taliesin, was an ongoing labor of art and love for the architect, altered and added to over many years, and the furnishings he made for it are as integral to its design as fingers are to a hand. Even as small a piece as the Taliesin Storage Ottoman shares the vision that imbues the whole house: love of nature married to love of clean geometric forms, good proportion, good functionality. And as always, the flair for the original: the modern ottoman seems to float on its right-angled base, yet remains sturdy and solid. The design has been adapted to make it into a storage ottoman, and the seat cushion lifts to reveal a hidden compartment. The Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin Storage Ottoman is constructed using expert joinery techniques in solid cherry, available in a choice of finishes. There is a generous range of choices for the cushion's fabric cover.
