I see I’m not the only insomniac around here. :)
Don’t you just love Wright’s work? Not too many architects these days design furnishings as well as the buildings to put them in.
Nice looking copies, and if memory serves me correctly, pretty close to the originals.

These are very cool. How do they hang on the wall? And by that I mean, does the mount go vertical or horizontal? I like these a lot.

Standing out at the edge of the table just to get a good shot of the lamps! The trouble some LJs will go through to show their work in just the right “light”! :)
One of the things on my list of places to visit are multiple FLW buildings that are still standing and in good repair, and of course, open for viewing. I have not yet seen any of them in-person, but have read plenty of books and these look like they would blend right in on some of those walls.
You’ve done it again H, more outstanding work!

They’re really impressive H. Is the globe made of glass? They have a wonderful soft glow. I would love to have them in my home. Great job.
