The living room from the Francis Little House at the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is one my favorite period rooms. It came from the second house Frank Lloyd Wright designed for the Little family. The first was built in Peoria, Illinois in 1902, typifies his early Prairie houses. But when the family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota a few years later, they commissioned Wright with another house, which was completed in 1914. Situated on a stunning lot, overlooking Lake Minnetonka, its design reflected the low and spreading layout that FLW came to favor after 1911. The Littles were living in the house until 1973, when the Met acquired the living room and its furnishings.
