Based on a design by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Pettit Cotton Rug brings comfort to your home in cool mid-century modern style.
When William Pettit, a beloved physician from northern Iowa, died suddenly, the state mourned, with newspapers suggesting that perhaps only the state governor was more popular. To honor her husband, Emma Pettit commissioned Wright in 1906 to design the Pettit chapel in Belvidere, IL, as a public memorial. The small, understated chapel is one of the earliest examples of Wright’s Prairie style. This rug design comes from drawings for rugs that Wright proposed for the chapel but were never executed. Completed in 1907, the chapel stands next to the grave of Mr. Pettit in the Belvidere Cemetery.
This hand-loomed rug makes a great gift for an architect, an architecture aficionado, or of course for yourself!
