Huntington Library Acquires Frank Lloyd Wright Furniture

The furniture has been at the Huntington since 2009 on loan but will now stay permanently at the library.

The Huntington Library has acquired 13 pieces of furniture designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

The library announced in a press release that the centerpiece of the acquisition is a "nine-piece dining room suite designed in 1899 for [Chicago's] Husser House."

The Huntington also acquired four chairs from four other signature Wright houses in Illinois: the Avery Coonley House, the Arthur Heurtley House, the Little House and the Ward W. Willits House, according to its release.

All 13 pieces have been available for viewing at the library on loan since 2009, but will now stay permanently at the Huntington.

More details on the acquistion can be found on the library website.
