If there was Father of American architecture it would most definitely be Frank Lloyd Wright. His timeless designs were far beyond his era and have been studied and expounded upon since their introduction. Wrights career which spanned from1887 to 1959 focused mostly on residential and later commercial buildings, but he also had some very well known furniture designs. Using mostly natural woods and metal Wright created some very clean styles focusing on geometrical shapes. One of my personal favorites is the Husser table with its attention to detail yet simple design, perfect for a minimalist such as myself. Another favorite is the multilevel desk which incorporates a hanging trash can as well as a set of drawers for an ultimate use of space.
