Orginally built in 1948, the Orinda House was a “Usonian” home built by Frank Lloyd Wright in Northern California. As all of Wright’s commissions, the fabled architect designed all of the furnishings to go into the completed project. For this California home, he chose a native Redwood for the cabinetry and free standing units. The home suffered a fire in 1993, and was rebuilt and refurnished. This cabinet is from an area not affected by the damage, and maintains a fine original patina. As with many of Wright’s designs, the pure geometry of the form echoed the overall theme of the individual room it occupied.
