Northome at the Met

Northome at the Met wright-chair. The Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan can’t really be said to have anything on display that is not a highlight. However, one of my personal favorite parts of the museum is the Frank Lloyd Wright room, a re-creation of the living room at Northome, formerly of Wayzata, Minnesota. The Met’s reassembled room contains some beautiful pieces of Wright-designed furniture, including in ingenious collapsable print table and a pair of chairs that seem to be Wright’s update of the Roycroft aesthetic. Recently, the met added an excellent virtual tour of the room to their website.
