b'86562WALTER BURLEY GRIFFIN (attributed)American oak occasional table, circa 191075cm high, 122cm wide, 66cm deepAn identical table can be seen in the accompanying image of a living room in a Walter Burley Griffin designed home in Edwardsville, St.Louis. That home had been designed by Griffin in 1906 for his brother, Ralph. Griffin had worked for Frank Lloyd Wright from 1901 - 1906 before establishing his own practice where he designed the interior fixtures and furniture for his projects as well as the buildings and gardens. Examples of Griffin-designed furniture are rarely offered in Australia.Influenced by the Chicago-based Prairie School, Griffin developed a unique modern style. He worked in partnership with his wife Marion Mahony Griffin. In 28 years they designed over 350 buildings, landscape and urban-design projects as well as designing construction materials, interiors, furniture and other household items.Of course, Walter Burley Griffin is now best known as the winner of the competition to design Australias capital city, Canberra. Griffin was largely under-appreciated during his time in Australia, but since his death recognition of his work has steadily grown. In 1964, when Canberras central lake was filled, as Griffin had intended, Prime Minister Robert Menzies declined to have the lake named after himself. Instead he named it Lake Burley Griffin, making it the first monument in Canberra dedicated to the citys designer.$3,0005,000560558An antique Australian cedar and red pine bookcase, 19th century,203cm high, 105cm wide, 47cm deep$6001,000 559A Gothic style lectern cabinet, blackwood and mountain ash, late 19th early 20th century,94cm high, 55cm wide, 43cm deep$300500 560An Australian revolving book stand, blackwood, late 19th century,105cm high, 51cm wide, 53cm deep$400600561A fluted pedestal, Tasmanian blackwood and pine, late 19th century,111cm high, 29cm diameter$400600561 558'
