The upholstered seat hiding behind the fireplace is an apparently illogical allusion to Wright's inglenook, anticipating (equally illogically) the Usonian bench seat ?

The light fixture in the wall between the faux inglenook and stair (photos 2-5), like the one at the Von Sternberg House, was a headlamp from an automobile.
