Spheres Squared: Wallpaper pattern adapted from the Avery Coonley Playhouse art glass window design

Avery Coonley Playhouse, Riverside, Illinois, 1912.

Avery Coonley commissioned Wright to design the Avery Coonley Playhouse as a place for his wife, Queene Coonley, to educate neighborhood children in the Froebel kindergarten method. She was intensely interested in the education of young children, and had already established a school where drama and students' plays figured as an important phase of their education. Wright themed his extensive use of art glass in the Playhouse to appeal to children. The art glass window designs, composed of bold geometry — circles and squares — in primary colors, appear to be influenced by Wright's affection for a parade with its balloons, flags, and confetti, and his experience with Froebel Gifts in his childhood. Wright called these abstract compositions a kinder-symphony. This wallpaper is an adaptation of one of the school's many art glass windows.
