The Allen House
Henry and Elsie Allen, 1915
The Allen House, that Frank Lloyd Wright considered “among my best”, is one of his last Prairie houses. The home simultaneously recalls the early houses of the period and preludes Wright’s Usonian style of the 1930’s. Wright designed the home while working on the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and the square structure, with its enclosed lily pool and garden, has a notably Japanese aesthetic. Complimenting the rich exterior are equally sumptuous interiors of art glass windows, bookcase doors, and masonry wall joints covered in gold leaf. The design motif of this product is from the home’s ceiling grille and reflects the concentric rectilinear style of the home.
Frank Lloyd Wright night lights by AlaModerna are made with cherry veneered MDF. This elegant night light feature slats on the top and sides with a clear acrylic bottom panel to allow more light to shine through. The base is almond colored to blend in with the cherry motif. 4" x 4" x 1.5".
