Aline Barnsdall commissioned Wright to build one of his greatest architectural achievements, “Hollyhock House,” atop a hill in Hollywood, in honor of her favorite flower. The geometric pattern of this runner features a design detail Wright used in four of the home’s art glass windows. The triangles that appear to dance around vertical stalks were designed to represent the flowers and leaves of the hollyhock plant. Hollyhock House was one of the last structures in which Wright used art glass windows. Hand-knotted in Nepal of New Zealand wool and natural silk.

About the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection

Classic Rug Collection was selected by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to design and market several series of rugs based on Wright’s designs. The company was chosen in part based on my Klimt Collection, which illustrates beautifully how I can work with an artist’s designs to interpret them and translate them into rugs. The most important part of the collection is the Signature Series, a group of hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs made at the highest quality level. The initial collection has five rugs and two runners.

All of the products in the Signature Series can be ordered in any color, size, or material; there are also stock sizes available for immediate delivery. We can also make custom Frank Lloyd Wright designs. Please contact us for more information.
