[Second floor stair landing, from hallway facing east, Fallingwater]
Desk, chair, and shelf, southwest corner, guest bedroom, second floor.
The window in the photo faces south, and looks out over the trellis which is above the southeast terrace (the one with the hatchway stairs going down to the stream). Most exposed shelves throughout the house are cantilevered, echoing the construction of the house itself. The chair in the photo is the one that Frank Lloyd Wright originally designed for the dining table.

The slender barrel chair Wright proposed for the dining area seemed static when grouped and was not adopted; however, the sample, set at a guest-room desk, appears graceful.
