Antiques & Collectibles in a New Prairie-Inspired House
A fabulous collection of period art pottery, antique furnishings—and new rugs in the Arts & Crafts tradition—lend a pedigree to a new house.
Concurrent with the American Arts & Crafts movement, Midwestern architects (the most famous is Frank Lloyd Wright) attempted to develop a modern, indigenous, American residential style. Prairie School houses are horizontal in emphasis and relatively unornamented. Hipped roofs and overhanging eaves are common, as are windows grouped in bands.
