Prairie Round Chair

Our Prairie Collection adapts the classic lines of the Prairie School architects for modern lifestyles.

Our craftsmen passionately apply the geometric styles and strong lines from that uniquely American, turn-of-the-century school of architecture. You’ll love the way these beautiful pieces fit perfectly into your contemporary or traditional home.

Natural Approach

While borrowing from the Arts & Crafts movement, the Prairie School Architects led by Frank Lloyd Wright, were apt to "break the box" and explore new conceptual approaches to home furnishings. They integrated radical new construction methods and materials with a new philosophy of life rooted in naturalism.

Our Furniture

You’ll find our emphasis on geometric shapes and new designs in our Prairie furniture collection. For example, the round chair (right) is built in a circular shape rather than the traditional rectangle. It depends on its slats for support as much as the actual legs.

The strong horizontal lines and overhangs of the Prairie Library Desk or the interplay of light and shadow in the repeating slats of the Prairie Round Chair alleviate the need for flowery ornamentation, and make a striking counterpoint to both period and contemporary interiors.
