Frank Lloyd Wright originated the Prairie Style which was part of the American Arts and Crafts movement. Frank Lloyd Wright created the philosophy of "organic architecture," the central principle of which maintains that the building should develop out of its natural surroundings. Among his fundamental contributions was the use of various building materials for their natural colors and textures, as well as for their structural characteristics. His exteriors incorporated low horizontal proportions and strongly projecting eaves. Wright was also influenced by Japanese design. His first exposure was the imperial Japanese exhibit at the Worlds Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. In 1905 he visited Japan for the first time and was able to study Japanese architecture. In 1895 Wright began designing furniture as he developed his concept of a totally integrated, harmonious interior. Wright is also known for the stained glass windows in the homes he designed and their furniture. These designs are the foundation for the Prairie style of the American Arts & Crafts Movement.
 
Prairie Style Beds
Our beds are inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright with their tapered post and you can see the Japanese influence in the in intricate slat work of the head board. The throw at the foot of the bed is a reproduction of a rug he designed for the Avery Coonley House in Riverside, Illinois in 1906.
