WESTERN CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE HOME

51 WRIGHT OF PASSAGE. Frank Lloyd Wright visited our Cliff May-designed headquarters in 1954. His famous Scottsdale, Arizona, architecture studio-Tal iesin West-celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. Commemorations include the reintroduction of Wright-designed furniture, such as this birch table lamp: $350, from Yamagiwa USA; call (818) 879-8611 for a local dealer.

52 MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Craftsman-style furniture-also called mission furniture because of its simple outlines and sturdy construction-achieved widespread popularity at the turn of the century. Two current sources are L. &J. G. Stickley, Manlius, New York (315/682-5500), and Berkeley Mills, Berkeley, California (510/549-2854).

53 HEAT WAVE. In the West, even the kitchen and the living room, complete with fireplace, can move outdoors. Los Angeles modernist Rudolph Schindler designed one of the first contemporary outdoor fireplaces for his Kings Road house in 1921. Call for tour times: (213) 651-1510.

54 RAWHIDE. In the 1930s, Cody, Wyoming, furniture maker Thomas Molesworth introduced the country to cowboy high style with his carved wood and leather furniture and metal lamps. Examples are found in the collection of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody.

FIT TO BE TILED.

The ceramic arts found fertile around in Western clays. From Arts and Crafts-era decorative tileworks, with names like Catalina and Malibu, to the Bauer tableware of the 1930s and '40s, ceramic tiles and tableware became signature features of Western living.

56 ALL DECKED OUT. The redwood deck changed the character of the Western home after World War II and made outdoor living almost as popular as breathing.

57 FAMILY VALUE. Westerners embraced the family room early: Sunset's first major report on it appeared in 1956.

58 ABRACADABRA. In 1929, a Clearwater Timber Company engineer in Idaho invented the clean-burning Pres-to-Log as a way of recycling sawmill waste.

59 PLYWOOD. Laminated Douglas fir panels were first exhibited in 1905 at the Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland. Plywood became a building staple in the 1950s and '60s and remains ubiquitous today.

60 SUNNY SIDE UP. Sunset first reported on solar energy for the home in 1903. Today's solar-power mechanisms can be placed out of sight, as they are at this new off-the-grid cabin by Santa Rosa, California, architect Chuck Peterson; (707) 527-9091.

THREADS OF CULTURE. "Petroglyph" is the sixth and final work in Hopi weaver and designer Ramona Sakiestewa's Native American blanket series. $350; (505) 989-1515.

62 BETTING THE RANCH. The suburban ranch house-as popularized by designer Cliff May and Sunset-came to embody Western living. May's Western Ranch Houses is available from Hennessey & Ingalls, $32. …
