| Gallery VIII - Colors of SAMARA"Photographs that say a lot about Frank Lloyd Wright's genius of design." Ed Townsend, 1999
Shooting from the dining area, Ed captures the warm glow of the SAMARA living room. Frank Lloyd Wright's abstraction of "winged seeds in motion" or samara are clearly evident on the back of one of the dining room chairs.
The rich golden colored glow of light in the living room creates a warm and comfortable environment on an early mid-June evening.
The colors of SAMARA are as varied as Nature itself. Like a golden-red sunset, the living room emits brilliance everywhere - whether you are looking from the inside out or from the outside in. Like in Nature, shadows dominate the total landscape of the room. The mitered glass corner allows straight-line vision all the way across the room to the long bookshelves and lighted entry of the house. The perforated boards in the clerestory windows cast shadows across the ceiling while the colors of the fabrics and rugs give up their soft hues. The built-in furniture, accented by indirect lighting hidden in the bookshelves above, provides light and dark variegated green colors balanced against the lighted brick wall and ceiling.
