Frank Lloyd Wright Barrel Chair

Frank Lloyd Wright said "Every chair must be designed for the building it will be in."

The "Barrel Chair" by Frank Lloyd Wright was designed in 1937 for Herbert Johnson's house, Wingspread. Made of natural cheerywood with an upholstered leather seat, the chair was a reworking of a design Wright created in 1904.

Wright saw the chair as an architectural challenge. He used tall straight chairs as a screen around tables. The simple shapes of his furniture permitted machine production, making the designs affordable. Indeed, Wright believed that machines could actually enhance the designs.

Copeland is the exclusive licensee of Frank Lloyd Wright furniture designs, Copeland appreciates the importance of maintaining his design legacy. Every piece of Frank Lloyd Wright� Furniture by Copeland is named for the house it was originally designed for and bears Wright’s signature, date of manufacture, and unique serial number.
