Fallingwater Is Priceless, But This Frank Lloyd Wright Furniture Starts at $140
The next best thing to living in one of his houses.

Frank Lloyd Wright–designed homes are real-estate gold, which is why any place that was constructed (or even inspired by) the renowned architect usually boasts a million-dollar-plus price tag. Fortunately, you don’t have to have deep pockets to channel his iconic style in your own space.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has teamed up with Inside Weather to launch a new capsule line of furniture inspired by Wright’s most iconic structures, including the Honeycomb House and Taliesin West. Beginning in May, the brand will reach out to customers who have preordered items to allow them to fully personalize their piece before it ships. In addition to choosing from the company’s 300 fabric options, you can customize the ottomans, seating, and stools with textile designs from Wright’s archive collection, reimagined in modern colorways. Owning furniture swathed in one of these four timeless prints is the next best thing to calling Fallingwater home.
These layered squares are likely based on Wright’s stained-glass finishes, according to an analysis of the original textile by the Cooper Hewitt Museum. The architect referred to the transparent panels as light screens and used them in the creation of skylights and tabletops.
In its original state, this maze-like pattern looks quite flat and linear, but Inside Weather’s iteration introduces dimension with soft curves and flowery shapes.
The cool ocean blues and muddy orange tones in this riff on one of Wright’s more geometric motifs speak to his connectedness to the outdoors.
Many of Wright’s upholstery and wallpaper graphics were based on optical illusions, and this vibrant version of one of those fanciful patterns proves the slightest trompe l’oeil effect can elevate an ordinary wood stool.
