This home and all its furnishings will be auctioned in Wright's Important Design sale.
In 1948 Kenneth Laurent commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build a home that integrated his needs as a wheelchair-bound disabled veteran with Wright's signature open plan designs. Wright took the opportunity to develop an elliptical plan for the first time; the resulting soft curves, open floor plan and flowing space were utilized in later houses of the 1950s. The Laurents became friendly with Wright and traveled often to Talisen commissioning interior furnishings for the home and a later addition to the property. This beautifully maintained home is sold by the original owners. Originally custom-built furnishings by Frank Lloyd Wright are included in the sale.
