F. Schumacher & Co. have discovered old patterns Frank Lloyd Wright made in the 1950s and have brought it back for the designer's 150th birthday

Fabric manufacturer F. Schumacher & Co. have brought back an original design American architect and interior designer, Frank Lloyd Wright, made in the mid-1950s to reintroduce to a modern audience.

The patterns were made by Wright on request of the Schumacher company to bring his famous designs to middle-class markets. They were entered in a collection known as the Taliesin Line, named after Wright’s estate. When Wright observed the fabrics hanging in middle-class lounge rooms, he demanded they were removed and not a part of the collection any longer. Schumacher’s current creative director, Dara Caponigro, rediscovered the pattern in the company’s archives three years ago and worked with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to restore them for the deceased designer’s 150 birthday this year.
