Clean lines and simple geometry is the key to Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. Born in 1867, Frank Lloyd is still today a prominent figure both in the Architecture community and world wide. Having constructed many buildings throughout his lifetime including the Robbie House, Price Tower, Fallingwater, Johnson Wax Building, and the Guggenheim Museum. Frank Lloyd Wright is most surely a master in his craft. My favorite aspect of Frank Lloyd Wright is his use of different building materials. Frank Lloyd Wright is well know for his overhanging roofs. During inclement weather, the overhanging room is perfect to shield the windows from the elements.

Even though Frank Lloyd Wright is well know for mission style furniture; eclectic, traditional, vintage and modern can easily be used in his homes. If your home is in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright like mine, feel free to mix up the furnishings and landscape. Even having died in 1959, Frank Lloyd Wright will never be forgotten.
