Frank Lloyd Wright designed The Heath House (1903–1904), where this chair resided, for William Heath and his wife Mary Hubbard Heath in Buffalo, New York. Mary Hubbard Heath was the sister of Elbert Hubbard, the founder of the well-known Roycroft Arts & Crafts campus in East Aurora, New York. The Heaths were also friends of Mr. & Mrs. Darwin Martin, whose Frank Lloyd Wright home was built concurrently. This oak chair retains most of its original leather, linen and horsehair upholstery.
