Re: Looking for Bexley Heath Prairie Period Furniture

Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately, I didn't see it until March 5. I offered to purchase it. I hope that it is not sold.

Cooler heads will prevail. Please fellow chatters don’t get overly emotional yet. The speed that the government moves at, as well as, the time it takes to get a project done, this edict will have little effect. Once the Federal Government commissions an architect and spends millions on archi...

Trumpenfuhrer, like Adolf the Fuhrer before him, sees Classicism as a way to further his megalomaniac ideals. Both like to scapegoat modern architecture and minorities.

It was a major win for the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright and historic preservation that the Anna Lloyd Wright House and the Italianate House will both be kept intact with the possible exception of non-original minor additions to the rear of each. Kudos to the FLW Trust for listening to what the commu...

I am only qualified to offer an opinion about historic preservation matters. I and others disagree with their decisions on this project. Beyond that, who they choose for leadership is their business and not my business. There is nothing personal about these types of issues. I am hoping that the vill...

The Society of Architectural Historians also wrote a strong letter in opposition to the demolitions. Kudos to them also. Unfortunately, the FLW Trust is losing credibility and the support of critical stakeholders, including FLW Homeowners, Architecturally Significant Homeowners, their neighbors who ...

The Italianate House will be income-producing as either rental housing or as office space for a non-profit organization or possibly small business. That income will be more than sufficient to cover its operation and maintenance. The Ann Lloyd Wright House is planned to be used by the FLW Trust. The ...
