That's great. Did you shoot any of the Gridley house while you were there---or at another time, perhaps ?

This program seems so appropriate for FLW houses. Dining was the most formal family function of the culture FLW was born into, and one that he maintained in his practice. Good food, good architecture, a table with lamps on the corners, who could ask for more?

(I wonder if he opined about the 1950s TV culture, and the habit of noshing in front of the tube on those little tables?)

Samara came with a cabinet that let the TV set pop up out of hiding!

But did the Christians dine on Swanson's Sea Food Delight while watching "I Love Lucy"?

Not only that, but Wright told John Christian when he put the TV in that they would probably want to have dinner while watching the news, so he designed some folding TV-trays for the house that had a perf design in them. The originals are still in the house.

I may be wrong but I think these were the first, and last, custom TV trays ever made before they were replaced by the ubiquitous rickety aluminum affairs. The house was from 1954 and TV became popular for regular folks a few years before.

On December 24,1968, while working for May Co. during the Xmas season, I sold a set of solid walnut TV tables in a Danish Modern style to Ella Fitzgerald. Just fifteen minutes before closing, she needed one last present for an employee. She paid $50 ... $368 today.
