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

The Architect Within
Doug Wintin




Introduction

Usonian furniture shows a fundamental change from the furniture of Frank Lloyd Wright's earlier designs in the Prairie Style. In the Usonian period, Wright began to utilize veneered plywood instead of solid stock.

This is key to the study of any of the Wright designed domestic furnishings of this time. The use of inexpensive materials was a continuation of the philosophy of the Usonian style:

    Good design at inexpensive prices for the masses.
This tenant was espoused by designers from the Arts and Crafts movement to the leaders of the Bauhaus and on into the Modernist designs that followed.
