Arizona Biltmore Patio Dining 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 dining 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.

About Frank Lloyd Wright (Designer)

Without question the greatest architect the United States has ever produced, Frank Lloyd Wright and his philosophy of “organic architecture” — of buildings that exist in harmony with their natural surroundings — had a profound influence on the shape of modern life. Wright gave us some of the most elegant and iconic structures in America: residences such as “Fallingwater,” in rural Pennsylvania, the Robie House in Chicago, and “Taliesin,” Wright’s own home; and masterful institutional structures that include the Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illinois, the Johnson Wax headquarters in Racine, Wisconsin, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

     Whenever possible, Wright designed the furniture for his projects, to ensure an affinity between a building’s exterior and interior. Wright’s wooden chairs and tables for his “Prairie Houses” of the early 1900s have sleek, attenuated forms, influenced by both the simplicity of traditional Japanese design and the work of Gustav Stickley and other designers of the Arts and Crafts movement. For Taliesin and several residential projects, Wright designed severely geometric chairs that are marvels of reductivist design. He revisited many of these forms in the 1950s in furniture licensed to the firm Henredon, adding a decorative frieze-like element to the edges of tables and stools.

     The works on these pages also show how happily Wright embraced new forms and materials. His desks and chairs for Johnson Wax have a streamlined look and use tubular steel to the same effect as designer Warren McArthur, who collaborated with Wright in the interiors of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. For the Price Tower (1956) in Oklahoma, Wright designed angular wooden desks as well as upholstered pedestal chairs made of chromed steel — audacious furniture for his tallest completed building project. The beauty of Frank Lloyd Wright’s furniture designs is that while many of us wish we could live in one of houses, his chairs, tables, and sofas connect us directly to his architecture, and to the history he made.
