Gracing a cul-de-sac and overlooking the Kankakee River, the handsome two story Dana Thomas home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright early in his career. It has a variety of unique and beautiful leaded glass windows. These designs show Wright’s early fascination with intricate designs made of geometric shapes at a time when his contemporaries were using elaborate Victorian embellishments.
These red and white mugs and coasters have been adapted from a detail of one of those windows.
Wright was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin in 1867, and Taliesin, the home, studio and country estate of Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in the hilly Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin near Spring Green. Wright's “Prairie style” became the basis of 20th-century residential design in the United States, and his furniture, art, and writing was crucial to twentieth century architectural development and has a profound influence on the decorative arts to this day.
