S.218 – Taliesin III
In 2016 visitors on the tour were permitted to take interior photographs. The interior includes a wide range of Wright furniture from the beginning of the century through the 1950s, including an assortment of furniture from son David’s house in Phoenix (S.322). It turns out that as clients commissioned assignments from Wright, he added a few copies of the furniture for his own use.
