Architect Fred M. Kemp Custom Coffee Table in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright

About

Unique custom coffee table designed by St. Louis architect & builder Fred M. Kemp Sr. for his personal home in Huntleigh Missouri a suburb of St. Louis, circa 1950s. Fred designed and built his home in the 1950s in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, including the furnishings. Fred sold his Frank Lloyd Wright influenced home years ago, but kept the items he designed for it in storage. I purchased them from the estate, along with some architectural drawings of the house after Fred passed away. I have kept them in my personal collection until now. The dining table will be offered soon. The coffee table top will be touched up prior to shipping, otherwise in excellent condition. Sadly Fred's house was recently demolished. See bio below, Fred also had a major Mercedes Collection and Museum. Bio from Kemp Homes: Since 1952 Fred M. Kemp built a reputation for designing and building exciting yet timeless homes. Each one was designed to fit the natural environment of the land, emphasizing indoor-outdoor relationships and continuing excitement long after a community was completed. Today Mr. Kemp’s legacy and passion for building continues with his son Bill Kemp. As a student, founder Fred M. Kemp was inspired by the architectural drawings hanging at Washington University’s School of Architecture, from which he graduated in 1950. He began to pursue his dream of applying his architecture principles to suburban home development and building well-designed, affordable housing throughout the St. Louis area. The history of home-building in St. Louis would not be complete without the enduring legacy of Fred M. Kemp. A gifted architect, visionary, and past president of the St. Louis Home Builders Association, Fred M. Kemp was a nationally recognized leader in the industry.
