Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian Rectangle Coffee Table
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 had a mission to bring topnotch design to the middle class, and the Usonian Rectangle Coffee Table was part of his major effort after WW2 to realize that idea. "Usonian" was coined in the 19th century as a term for people and things from the United States -- U
tates of N
orth America, since "American" could apply to the whole Western Hemisphere -- and Wright adopted it for this family of house and furnishing designs.
This Usonian modern coffee table illustrates the architect's originality with the supporting vertical planes that rotate 90 degrees from each other as you go around the table -- a good example of the "how'd he think of that!" factor that shows up constantly in Wright designs -- which make the table's storage capacities just that much better than a conventional arrangement, and looks wonderful. The Usonian Rectangle Coffee Table measures 50.5" on the long side, and is a solid wood coffee table constructed with fine joinery techniques in cherry. It is available in 6 mellow finishes.
