Beautiful. Alignment with the mortar joints and tight fit with the endwall makes it.

Doesn't that look great ? This is one of Wright's most accommodating bench seats -- and now the upholstery sings, too. Warm and cheerful post-war colors, all around this room . . .

Love the continuity of seat through the glass.
Seems really well done.

Also...question: Do the inside seat cushions lay of a flat surface? My sofa has a 2 1/2" trench with a 1" trim piece that extends beyond the sofa. I don't know why I haven't dealt with the cushions yet but we're hosting a fundraiser for Columbus Landmarks on Oct 8 so now I have to stop procrastinating!

BTW there is a Columbus Landmarks tour that will include Ted van Fossen's Rush Creek Village on Sunday August 27 if anyone will be in the area:

Rush Creek Village Walking Tour
Sunday, August 27
2-4:30 p.m.
$15/$20


Columbus Landmarks is very pleased to partner with Rush Creek Village on a walking tour of this planned residential community in Worthington that was developed in the 1950s and designed by Columbus native Theodore van Fossen. The homes in Rush Creek were Inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, and are built of natural materials, using forms carefully chosen to complement the surrounding rolling, wooded landscape. Rush Creek Village is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and its residents are committed to maintaining the architectural integrity and spirit of the Village’s organic style of architecture.

Our walking tour will be led by architects and tour guides knowledgeable about organic architecture and Usonian design. A few Rush Creek Village residents will open their homes so that tour participants can fully experience the inherent practical and functional design, as well as the intentional relationship of the homes within the natural setting.

Tour proceeds will benefit Columbus Landmarks and Rush Creek Village.

I wish it were closer to Chicago; I would love to tour Rush Creek Village. Could you take some photos?

To answer your question about the benches: Both benches, the built in bench now covered in the gold fabric, and the modular benches with reddish fabric on the opposite side of the room have plywood underneath the cushions. The seats of the modular benches are parallel to the floor, the built in seat and back are sloped and are on hinges with storage under the seat. And both have a 3/4" thick fascia board "lip" extending above the plywood.
