The use of wood inner linings in the work of Frank Lloyd Wright is discreet.
Virtually no architect is able to avoid using wood inner linings, in greater or lesser degree for the embellishment of interiors in their buildings.
Today we have looked at wood inner linings and small details in wood in the work of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright was the author of a new concept regarding interior spaces in buildings. He designed rooms that opened to one another, offering more scope and enabling the flow of light. To differentiate areas he used lightweight divisions, changes in materials and varying ceiling heights. And that is where wood makes its appearance.
Wood inner linings in 4 works by Frank Lloyd Wright:
-The wood inner linings in Fallingwater. Built in 1935, Fallingwater is the best-known work by Wright. Of particular interest is the use of wood shelves in some walls accentuating the horizontality of the space in the room. Photos on our albums on Pinterest, Facebook and Google+.

-The wood inner linings in Robie House: This 1909 work was praised as the culmination of his prairie school style. It stands out for its wood mouldings and ornaments in wood ceilings and walls in the dining room of the house. Photos on our albums on Pinterest, Facebook and Google+.
-The wood inner linings in Kenneth Laurent House. It was built in 1949 in Illinois for a war veteran who was in a wheelchair and is the perfect example of affordable housing.
