Once upon a time, long ago and far away, I wanted to be an architect. (Of course the fact that I couldn’t draw sort of doomed that career path.) One of the architects who inspired me the most at that time was Frank Lloyd Wright.
Perhaps the most widely known and recognized building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright was a home named Falling Waters. Not only did he design the home he designed the furnishings.
One of the items he designed for the home was a bedroom lamp. Fellow LJ Randy Price has recreated this design and his finished lamp is shown in this project.
This is what Randy’s Lamp looks like:
I’ve decided to build one of these lamps. Actually, I’m going to try to build four of them, two for a housewarming gift for a coworker and two for an anniversary gift for my wife (shhhh, don’t tell her!)...
Of course I’m not Frank Lloyd Wright or Randy Price, so my lamps are going to be a little bit different, they’ll be inspired by FLLW and Randy but I’m going to have to do them my way…
So, I’ve downloaded the FREE PLANS for this lamp from Randy's blog and I’m getting ready to start my build.
Stay tuned for more episodes in the series in the near future and in the meantime…
