Side chair, c. 1903

Wright's tall-back chairs are his trademark furniture form of the Prairie School period. This chair from the Francis Little house in Peoria, Illinois is unusual in having a solid, massive back of quartersawn oak, in sharp contrast to Wright's typical tall spindles. It might have served as a hall chair originally, as hall chairs typically have solid wooden backs.
