Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 – 1959) is widely considered to be America’s greatest architect. He amazed the world with his architectural ingenuity and designs. His vision encompassed the buildings and residences he designed, as well as their landscaping, art glass, furniture, lighting and floor covering, to create a unified whole. In 1928, Frank Lloyd Wright began creating a major remodeling project of the existing resort, the San Marcos in the Desert Hotel on the outskirts of Phoenix. The project was never completed due to the 1929 stock market crash, but the building design and the interior renderings contain a variety of interesting furniture and decorative features.
This adapted globe stand showcases the 60 degree angled legs and the hexagonal top of a small accent table designed for the totally new special Dining Pavilion bordered by the garden terraces of the San Marcos in the Desert Hotel, Chandler, Arizona. (Project revised 1936) This Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® product is authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona.
