CHAIR FROM THE BILTMORE HOTEL, PHOENIX, ARIZONA

Literature

"Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, Arizona," The Architectural Record, July 1929, p. 37 (showing the chair model in one of the hotel's five-room suites)
Candice St. Jacques Miles, Arizona Biltmore:  Jewel of Dreams, Scottsdale, 1985, p. 25 (for related designs) and pp. 27, 29 and back cover

Catalogue Note

Albert Chase McArthur, a former apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, completed the famed Biltmore Hotel in 1929 with the consultation of his mentor.  The furniture designed for the interior was created by his brother, Warren McArthur and KEM Weber.  McArthur's designs for the hotel for the most part incorporated wrought iron, while Weber utilized wood.  Both maintained in their designs a strict linear pattern, which reiterated the geometric concrete blocks designed by Frank Lloyd Wright on the exterior of the structure.
