It is not very difficult to say that Frank Lloyd Wright is almost synonymous with American architecture. The name carries such cachet that “inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright” has become a nickname for any home with a flat roof, overhang, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
While Wright will be remembered as one of the most influential and important architects of the 20th century, it wasn’t just houses he designed. Throughout his decades-long career, the visionary has also done many projects on a much smaller scale, imagining furniture, tableware and glassware, often displayed inside one of his buildings.
Now you can see many of these iconic pieces carefully preserved under the roof. A new temporary exhibit at the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art in Denver, Colorado, “Frank Lloyd Wright Inside the Walls” aims to view Wright’s works of decorative art as integral to his larger vision.
“We look forward to sharing these intriguing examples of Wright’s work in a cohesive exhibition,” Renée Albiston, associate director of the museum, said in a statement. In the exhibit, guests can find artifacts from 11 of Wright’s architectural projects in addition to historic photos of the pieces in their original settings.
