Garden Room Seating

This photo shows part of the Garden Room, which opens up to the Garden on the East and the vast horizon on the South.  

The Garden room at Taliesin West is visually interesting, comfortable, and is a place where many guests have been entertained.  

In this photo, you can see many items of furniture that Frank Lloyd Wright designed. The butterfly chairs he designed are quite sophisticated and comfortable. 

The nesting tables he designed are very practical. Note the ceiling with the canvas coverings.    

The second photo shows the garden and gives you an idea of how large the room is and how light and airy it is.

The statue is art sculpted by Cornelia Brierly, who has been involved at Taliesin West since she arrived as an apprentice when it started.

The glass sitting area opens to the private garden and is very nice.  You can see the Native American pottery in the window.  Click Taliesin West under my labels for more photos.  I hope you have enjoyed the tour of Taliesin West, a special Arizona treasure.

I sat in the butterfly chairs and they are indeed comfortable. Also, they are made of plywood, so they would be rather inexpensive to build.

This is such an interesting place. I will have to go sometime. I'm loving those chairs.

I love the folding screen in the first photo and the beautiful "sprite" statue in the second.

Certainly is unique and colorful...I like the way the desert colors are incorporated into everything.

I love the butterfly chair. Design Within Reach (DWR) has reproductions of them but they are soooo expensive.
