Publisher Comments:

If you've ever wanted to step inside a house designed by frank Lloyd Wright or if you've ever dreamed of living in one andlt;Iandgt;The Wright Styleandlt;/Iandgt; offers the next best thing: an extraordinary look inside dozens of Wright's incomparable houses, all of them filled with countless inspiring ideas from America's favorite architect. andlt;BRandgt; From "pure" Wright houses to homes where his decorative magic has been mixed with related styles, the book captures the essence of the architect's timeless designs the spaces, the textures, the colors, the light, the furniture, the special features that all say Frank Lloyd Wright. As the magnificent houses here show, each of Wright's buildings was a complex composition of many interrelated elements; he regarded them as symphonies. Wright designed not just the shell, but everything inside as well: furniture, skylights, art glass windows, light fixtures, textiles, carpets, wall murals, decorative accessories, even the landscaping. andlt;BRandgt; Illustrating how Wright affected and inspired other houses, andlt;Iandgt;The Wright Styleandlt;/Iandgt; also presents interpretations of Wright's principles by some of his followers and apprentices providing a guided walk through a century of his unsurpassed influence on design. And for those who love Wright but who cannot live in complete, authentic rooms or purchase antique Wright furnishings, the book's catalogue of products makes it possible at least to bring a touch of the Wright style home. andlt;BRandgt; "Wright's ideas have so permeated our architectural world that we have lost track of the source," writes author Carla Lind. "His open floor plans led to family rooms, kitchens open to living areas, indoor spaces open to outdoor living spaces, garden rooms, decks, and carports. His use of glass opened window walls and brought generous amounts of light and inspiring vistas into rooms. He altered America's collective subconscious. By bringing together many elements and inspirations, most neither new nor original, he was able to synthesize fresh new forms that reflected the character of the nation."

sfallon, August 10, 2009 (view all comments by sfallon)
Had great pleasure reading this book, especially the section on the Fisher House in Sisters Oregon, especially since it was recently purchased from the Fishers by my wife's cousin. We spent a few days there and were enchanted is the word to describe the stay.

The design concepts were published in a Taliasin news letter, which unfortunately was not covered extensively in the book in the book.

The new owners were not aware of the significance of the house except that the architect was a pupil of Mr Wright. So they were delighted to receive a copy of the book with its excellent illustrations.

I am pleased to report the book occupies a permanent place on their coffee table
