Writing of his aesthetic theories in the introduction to the Wasmuth Portfolio, Wright described his organic, unified interiors, declaring:

“They are all mere structural details in its character and completeness, heating apparatus, light fixtures, the very chairs, tables, cabinets and musical instruments, where practicable, are of the building itself. Nothing of appliances or fixtures is admitted purely as such where circumstances permit the full development of the building scheme. Floor coverings and hangings are a part of the house as the plaster on the walls or the tiles on the roof.” —Frank Lloyd Wright Trust
