Frank Lloyd Wright's Slant Back Chair
Frank Lloyd Wright's slant back chairs were created for only a handful of buildings and commissions, including Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio, Oak Park, Hillside Home School, Spring Green, WI, Larkin Administration Building, Buffalo, Unity Temple, Oak Park and the Robie House, Chicago.
In 50 Favorite Furnishings by Frank Lloyd Wright, author Diane Maddex noted;
"Wright soon added to his repertoire a slant-back chair exemplifying these ["machines are the artist's best friend"] ideals. Paying homage to a machine's ability to produce perfect lines, a spare oak board slides past a simple leather seat down to the rear stretcher to support the sitter's back at just the right angle. It peeks provocatively above the stiles, which are cuffed with rectangular blocks top and bottom."
