The Barrel Chair was originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1904 for the D. D. Martin House in Buffalo, New York; this iconic chair was an embarkation from his earlier linear furniture designs; due to its round shape. Original features included a flared backrest, square spindle supports and a cushioned double-sided circular seat. In 1937, Frank Lloyd Wright re-created the Barrel Chair design in a larger version with other design modifications for the residence of Herbert F. Johnson, known as “Wingspread”, to accommodate the expansive rooms and towering ceiling heights.
