Made in Vermont by Copeland Furniture.
Frank Lloyd Wright designed over 1,100 pieces of furniture during his long career. And many of his most notable pieces are part of a select collection by Copeland Furniture. Working with archivists at The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona, Copeland Furniture selects those designs that best exemplify Wright's design and aesthetic principles. Then, to protect and preserve the Wright legacy, Copeland names each piece for the client and house for which it was designed.
The Barrel Chair remains one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous chairs and was used throughout the designer's Taliesin Residence in Spring Green, Wisconsin. This piece was designed and redesigned by Lloyd Wright over a span of 30 years, beginning with its original iteration in 1903 for the Darwin D. Martin House. It was redesigned in 1937 for the Herbert F. Johnson House (Racine, Wisconsin) before eventually being used at the Taliesin Residence. The chair's distinguishing barrel shaping is accented with vertical woodwork running the length of the chair back. The compact frame is comfortable and features cushioned seating in a variety of fabric and leather upholstery options.
Each piece of Frank Lloyd Wright® Furniture by Copeland is made of solid hardwood that is Forest Stewardship Council certified. A labor intensive hand-rubbed finish incorporates stain pigments and highlights grain definition in each piece. Copeland Furniture uses only catalyzed lacquer finishes that meet the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association's high standards. They withstand tough stains and age beautifully.
The Taliesin Barrel Chair is offered in two finishes. Select Parkton Cherry or Natural Cherry wood, then select from a variety of fabric and leather seating options.

The chair is strong, sturdy, and beautiful as well as comfortable. It was well wrapped for shipping without damage. We were looking for a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design for our family room and this style and quality piece is exactly what we wanted. There was a 9 week wait period from time of order, so plan accordingly if you have a specific date when you need the chair. We considered the wait worth it.
Stunning chair - Truly a piece of art!!!
By: Barbara , Homeowner (Illinois)
This chair created from a Frank Lloyd Wright design is even better than I expected. I first saw it at the Frank Lloyd Wright Museum store at a much higher price. By ordering through YLiving I was able to get two in the wood and fabric of my choice for the best price and free shipping. I would highly recommend YLiving and plan to use them for future purchases.

Absolutely stunning piece of quality workmanship!
By: James, Renter (Lee's Summit, MO)
This Frank Lloyd Wright replica is incredible! Manufactured by an American company (Copeland), with native hardwoods. The quality is what you would expect for a bygone era replica piece. This piece of art is not a cheap date. So after scouring the Internet for the best deal, I chose YLiving because of their reputation & price (Don't forget to sign up for their newsletter for an additional discount). The piece was delivered as estimated, and arrived damage free. I will consider YLiving for future purchases.
Designer: Frank Lloyd Wright
In his lifetime, and a design career spanning 75 years, Frank Lloyd Wright created some of the most recognizable architectural and interior designs in the world. Born in Wisconsin (1867), Wright began his formal education in 1885 at the University of Wisconsin, Madison School for Engineering. He took classes part-time for two semesters, but in 1887, Wright left the university without receiving a degree and moved to Chicago where embarked on his architectural career with firm's like Joseph Lyman Silsbee and then Chicago's premier firm, Adler & Sullivan before beginning his own firm. It was in his own practice that the designer developed his philosophy of "organic architecture" which governed his designs throughout his career.View other products by Frank Lloyd Wright

At their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Bradford, Vermont, the family owned and operated company uses the latest technology along with traditional handcrafting to produce modern classics from sustainably harvested hardwoods. Their natural hardwood furniture features original designs inspired by their New England surroundings with influences in Shaker, Mission, and the Arts & Crafts design movements. It is this combination of elements that characterizes furniture of classic proportion and modern simplicity in Copeland Bedroom, Dining, Home Office and Occasional collections.
Copeland uses traditional cabinetmaking techniques in their factory where maple, cherry, and walnut lumber is cut, sanded, and hand-selected for each piece of furniture. An assembly team devotes special care and attention to ensure that all the joinery is clean, flush, and smooth to the touch. They are committed to building furniture with the best materials and workmanship available today; furniture that will be handed down for future generations to use daily and to enjoy its enduring beauty for years to come.
And thoughtful construction goes beyond technique and materials. This is a company that seeks to reduce its environmental impact, from its initiative to produce water born, formaldehyde free top coat finishes to reduce VOC emissions at the factory and off-gassing at the home to its commitment to using only lumber which comes from within 500 miles of the manufacturing facility, reducing fuel consumption and emissions from transportation. Copeland Furniture complies with Vermont's strict regulations on air quality emissions, hazardous waste, worker safety, and storm water runoff. They work to recycle and reduce packaging material and volatile solvents.
