Summary Wright was an early proponent of "total design." Unsatisfied with what was available in designing a given space or home, he invented what was needed, developing a language of architectural detail and styling that is unique and which extended to the tables, bookcases, easy chairs, sofas, and cabinets; to rugs and murals; to stonework; to stained glass "light screens," which served as windows and doors and room partitions; to lighting.
