Frank Lloyd Wright designed these oak side chairs as a part of a dining room suite for his lawyer Sherman Booth's house. Located in Glencoe, Illinois, the Sherman Booth House is a part of the Ravine Bluffs Development. Wright said of his furniture: "I found it difficult...to design it as architecture and make it 'human' at the same time -fit for human use. I have been black and blue in some spot, somewhere almost all my life from too intimate contact with my own early furniture."

These chairs very closely resemble the ones from my great grandfather, William B. Greene's, FLW home on Garfield Ave in Aurora, IL (1912).
