This is the only book to bring together the best-loved rooms of Frank Lloyd Wright, the world's noted and America's most popular architect.

The elegant color photographs show why Wright is so loved, with cameos of the furniture, lighting, carpets, fabrics, stained glass, china and fireplaces that were all part of his integral design of a house. An illustrated introductory section provides an explanation of the architect's approach, and the rest of the book presents portraits of fifty distinct rooms with profiles of each.
