This Lamp was inspired by a dining table lamp designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Dana-Thomas House
in Springfield, Illinois..The Japanese influences are shown in the shade with it’s Tea House roof similarities..The
one he designed was all metal with the stained glass shade..

I have seen several Frank Lloyd Write lamps and lanterns and often considered how I would make one. I often think the shades are particularly difficult to design. You did a great job at this. I feel a little motivated to try again to imitate one of his designs. My favorite is at Taliesin -http://www.maclinstudio.com/frllwrmitall.html?utm_source=googlepepla&utm_medium=adwords&id=21430989202&utm_content=pla&gclid=COLJ_P6k4LwCFas-MgodfTUAcw
