When Frank Lloyd Wright designed a building, he did not simply construct a shell, but, after consulting with the residents, he would create an entire layout for the house. His use of interior space and the furnishings he designed are as startling and attractive as his buildings. From art-glass lamps to tables and chairs to carpets and fabrics, he strove to carry through the themes and motifs he carefully planned out for the particular building. Following an introduction that explains the architect's philosophy of design and his approach to interiors, 15 case studies and a selection of other buildings showcase just how spectacular, yet livable, his interiors could be.
