Hold on to your hats, cat-loving connoisseurs of mid-century modern design! Here’s something you don’t see everyday! It’s a vintage cat house designed by the office of none other than Frank Lloyd Wright. This pieces was designed for the daughter of Gerald Tonkens, for whom Frank Lloyd Wright designed a residence in Amberley Village, Ohio in 1955.
The original drawing of the cat house, ‘Felis Catus’, was completed by Thomas Olson, the site supervisor for the project. Apparently, Mr. Wright described the design to Mr. Olson over the phone, which is why the design is credited to the Office of Frank Lloyd Wright.
Both the original house and the drawing are currently available for sale on 1stDibs.com for — are you ready for this??? — $14,500.
Thanks to Peter for the find.
