design 104

A friend was saying recently that he thought Frank Lloyd Wright could be a little too formulaic ~ and at the time I agreed. Then, I came across this fabric swatch, and was suprised and delighted to see it was designed by Wright ~ something out of the ordinary for sure. Wishing you a happy tuesday that is anything but formulaic...cheers!

Surely some intelligent company should reproduce this, yes? It's like mother-of-pearl discs strewn across deer suede.
