I was looking for photos of my favourite Frank Lloyd Wright building, Fallingwater when I came across these by Galen Frysinger, retired scientist and world traveller. He provides us with a view of this modernist classic that is human and everyday. You feel as if the owners have just stepped out of the room to make some tea. So much more intimate than the official images. Where else would you see the woven cane airing shelves and the hot water/drinks heater by the fireplace.
I suppose you could call the design firm of Wilson & Associates an empire, considering they have a staff of over 280 registered architects, accredited designers, design assistants and administrative staff. "The firm's design philosophy is simple, design for the market. No specific "style" or "look" is attributed to the firm, rather they create a custom project for each client and are very involved in research prior to beginning the actual design process. Designers seek to incorporate a geographical flavor into each project by the use of local craftsmen, artisans and artists...".
Ah, the wishbone chair. Otherwise known as the Y chair or the CH24 chair. This was designed by Hans Wegner in 1950 and is one of his most popular pieces. I love it's Scandinavian organic simplicity. My favourite is this chair paired with an old harvest table. OH YEAH. A bit of Wishbone chair porn for your enjoyment.
"When I started Kathryn Waltzer Interior Design it was with the philosophy of individual design for individual, 'out of the box' people. I am inspired by clients who are interested in pushing the envelope and working with visually exciting ideas .... What's most gratifying about my work is when, after a job is completed, a client tells me how their new kitchen, master bedroom, or family room has changed how they use their home - literally how they live." I couldn't put it better. This is the work of Kathryn Waltzer. Enjoy!
