Avery Tulip Red - 4x4
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the 20th century.
Built in 1907 in Riverside, Illinois, the Avery Coonley House is a grand Prairie-style residence designed by Wright for Avery and Queene Coonley. As was the case with all Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, the home’s exterior and interior were envisioned and executed as a unified whole. In addition to the main house, the estate included sunken gardens, a gardener’s cottage and a coach house.
Wright’s drawing of a tile frieze for the Coonley House was the basis for Motawi Tileworks’ 4x4 Avery Tulip art tile. While the drawing was never executed on the house, the design remains an early example of Wright’s geometric nature abstractions.
Actual tile size: 3-13/16 inch square
Tile is 5/8 of an inch thick and has a notch at the back for hanging.

Nawal Motawi and Motawi Tileworks of Ann Arbor, Michigan are great friends of Modern Bungalow. Nawal is an inspiration in her artistry, design and business acumen. We love their tile in framed sets, in installations like fireplaces and backsplashes, and just on its own on a sweet little easel.
There are too many great designs to choose favorites, but we love the songbirds and all of the Pine Landscape tiles- especially the special Colorado Pine Landscape that Motawi Tileworks made just for us!
We carry a large selection of Motawi art and decorative tiles in our showroom, including limited edition, discontinued, and special edition pieces.
We also work with our customers to design backsplash, fireplace, and other installations to truly make your home unique. Ask us anytime!
