Frank Lloyd Wright American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 745

Frank Lloyd Wright designed this table specifically for the Littles’ living room in Wayzata, using the same light-finish white oak employed in the room's trim, light fixtures, and shelving. The long tabletop appears almost to float above the four sturdy legs, and the central cabinet block seems to be hung from the top. Instead of attaching handles to the cabinet doors, Wright designed simple cut-out handholds. His design marries substantial forms to frame surprising slices of negative space. The overall effect is that of a table that is grounded yet light, and seamlessly integrated into its environment.
