SAMARA Furniture and Its Use
In A Frank Lloyd Wright Designed Home

The Owner's View
John Christian


Early in his career as an architect in 1910, Frank Lloyd Wright said, "It is quite impossible to consider the building one thing and its furnishings another."

SAMARA is one of the last homes that Frank Lloyd Wright designed having been done in 1954-55. The Christian's moved into their home in the Fall of 1956. Mr. Wright was 89 years old and passed away just two and one half years later at the age of 91.

Being one of the last of Mr. Wright's designs, the SAMARA plans include many of his innovations accumulated over 70 years of architectural practice.

Architectural historians have recorded over 40 such innovations existing in the living room of SAMARA alone. Most of these innovations relate to items inside of the house including a number of furniture items.
