Arizona Biltmore Patio Coffee Table by Frank Lloyd Wright

About

Albert Chase McArthur was the son on one of Wright's first Chicago clients and was a former apprentice of Wright. Wright's career was at a low ebb in 1927 with few pending projects as he faced financial and personal problems. With atypical humility, Wright agreed to consult on the project of another architect. Wright's primary services would be the designing and engineering of the concrete block system (later known as Biltmore blocks). When Wright left, design changes made the blocks merely decorative elements instead of the integral, structural part of the building.

In 1973, the hotel was sold and during an update to the sprinkler system, the hotel caught fire. After a very hurried and extensive remodel, the Biltmore reopened with a new look.

This patio coffee table dates to the original furnishings of the Biltmore before the 1973 remodel. It has the original finish and patina. It still has a majority of the original paint intact.
