Side Chair

Frank Lloyd Wright American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 745

These two chairs (1972.60.9,.10) were among the Wayzata room’s furnishings, however it is not known whether they were designed for it or for the Littles’ earlier Peoria house. Although the finish is the darker stain of the Peoria pieces, the sleeker, less ornamented form of the chairs may indicate that they are from the later commission. Other chairs of this same design were made for Wright’s 1908 Isabel Roberts House. In the 1942 photograph of the room, two additional chairs like these, but without the leather backrest, are seen drawn up to the print table.
