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 colour handles, so they don't compete visually with the designs. The wardrobes are shown as a freestanding 2 or 4 door robes, but can just as easily be built-in. The interiors can be fitted anyway you want. Made to order. We've shown many more options below.
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 low cupboard could equally be a chest of drawers if preferred.
The following designs shows a progression of ideas, showing how a basic idea can be extended or adapted to your requirements, be they wardrobes, storage and display unit or a large media unit. The interiors can be fited out as you want.
The above designs show some 4 door robe finish options. Above left the robes are in mahogany or Cypress, typical Wright interior woods. The top right robes are in a lighter oak, with details picked out in a richer darker wood. The bottom LH design uses birds eye maple with walnut detailing, more of an Art Deco finish than Wright.
