These are some new FLW style wardrobes & bedroom furniture we designed. They have the typical Wright use of flat surfaces, but what makes them is the stylised designs on the doors. The design was inspired by a FLW chair, and it works remarkably well on larger scale furniture; it's surprising he didn't do this himself. Below we've shown a whole range of furniture combinations & different colours. Wright was ever an artist, so we tried to incorporate something more artistic into the design. The cut-out designs can be left as cut-outs, which looks very effective. But the cut-outs can also be backed in various ways to emphasis the shapes / colours more; for example painted, gold/silver/copper leafed, stained glass in a wide range of colours & textures, mirror, a lighter/darker wood, etc. etc..
The robes are usually supplied with matching handles. The wardrobes are shown as a freestanding 2 door robe, but could be a 3 or 4 door robe, corner robes or built-in. Above right is shown 2 double robes with a matching low cupboard dressing table (could be a chest of drawers) with a large dressing mirror above. The interiors can be fitted anyway you want. Made to order.
The full Wright bedroom is shown on another page in the FLW section.
As well as the robes being made in an oak / wood finish, the typical FLW materials, we've shown lots of painted versions of the same. Wright worked with Gene Masselink on many artisitc pieces & works combining painted finishes with wood, to produce some very striking pieces. We just ran with the same ideas. As well as having the stylised designs as cut-outs from the doors, they can look equally good if applied to the doors, especially for the colour versions. The robes are shown a range of muted more pastel Arts & Crafts - early 20's colours.
The above designs show another combination of the wardrobe with a lower cupboard (same width as the robe for balance). The design on the cupboard has been scaled down to keep it in proportion to the main robe. The painted versions have been shown with stronger darker colours to the 2 door robe versions above.
The above designs show some options for combining 2 wardrobes. Above LH shows a double robe, with the stylised door design, flanked by 2 single robes. Above RH shows 2 standeard double robes with designs. Bottom LH 2 double robes with a low cupboard in between; You could actually put a matching double bed in between the 2 robes. Bottom right is shown 2 double robes with a matching low cupboard dressing table (could be a chest of drawers) with a large dressing mirror above. Colour versions are shown below.
