This Prairie Settle loveseat was made out of Mahogany and with Walnut panels. I have made many of these in the past but never for my own and thought I would build one in different woods. Also at the time I was starting my business and did not have much extra lumber to choose from! The Panels were all re-sawed and book matched around the Prairie Settle. The cushions are not my favorite but since then have upgraded.I can not complain about the cushions though because my upholster in Florida helped me out and did them for cost when I was starting out and he picked the fabric. Since then (2007) I have build I have built a few more including a spindle one that i will have pictures of soon.

Don’t know if you are as good with words as you are with your craft? You might share the ride for some of us less talented voyers? LOL!

Some nice refinements to the standard Prairie Settle Loveseat. I like the top bracing attached to the legs.

One of my favorites. F L Wright designed horribly leaky roofs but the prairie style lives on. Love it!
