The lounge chair is designed specifically for Auldbrass by FLW. I think the adirondack chair was designed by Eric Lloyd Wright for Auldbrass not 100% sure on that.

I believe the chair in photo 18 is from the Jiyu Gakuen School, Tokyo, Japan and might be designed by Frank Lloyd Wright , Arata Endo or both

I think Peterson has a plaque with a red square not a red tile. But you can add Lindholm Station and Lovness to the list

A few FLLW homes used Jack Lenor Larsen fabrics one would be the Henry J Neils house in Minneapolis. Frank Lloyd Wright also used Larsen fabrics for the music room at Taliesin

Maybe SDR could post the photo of the Heurtley House chair again or try the link below. There are two or three photos that should show the chair in question is a reproduction.

If a top name craftsman with higher costs are what your looking for then then find someone in LA area like James Ipekjian who's work is amazing. If you would like to save $$ and still get top quality then look for a local craftsman near the Lamberson house. You can save on materials , labor shipping...

Heres a good place to start. In 1949 Goodyear introduced Vinyl flooring supplementing Goodyear's line of rubber flooring dating back to 1905, I believe they used vinyl flooring for the countertops? At the Willey house they used linoleum on the floor and the countertops. This link has a Goodyear ad f...
