Our tour guide (in the plaid shirt) shared lots of fun and weird stories with us about the house and the quirky genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. Here is the main room used for parties. Frank Lloyd Wright had several pianos throughout the property and this one (behind the guide) was frequently played by Wright. All of the furniture in this room (except the piano) is replicas of the originals. Canvas panels were installed here to diffuse the light just as they were used in the studio and elsewhere.

I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
