In 1927, Wright submitted a series of cover designs for Liberty Magazine. All four designs were rejected by the editors at the time, who deemed them too “radical,” and the covers were never published. One of those designs, “Saguaro Forms and Cactus Flowers,” depicted Wright’s interpretation of a desert landscape. Although initially disregarded, the image is now one of Wright’s most popular designs and was later transformed into a stained-glass feature of Arizona’s famous Biltmore Hotel lobby. This rug design uses the abstracted square “flowers” of the Saguaro design, and features an irregular edge. Hand-tufted in Thailand of New Zealand wool.

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.
