1907 Francis and Mary Little commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright, the architect of their home in Peoria, to design a summer residence for them on their lakeshore property. The home that Wright designed for the Littles was one of his last great Prairie School houses. There was much discussion between Wright, who drew elaborate designs for the windows, and Mr. Little, who did not want an intricate pattern to obscure his view of the lake. In the many large expanses of glass throughout the house, a central area of plain glass is "framed" with a border that includes white and red squares and triangles. The Metropolitan Museum of Art purchased the house in 1972, dismantling rooms for reinstallation at the Metropolitan and other museums. This hallway, which led to the master bedroom, has been installed without its fourth wall, allowing a broader view of the windows.
