“Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities.”
– Frank Lloyd Wright
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood in North Buffalo, the Darwin Martin House is considered by many to be Frank Lloyd Wright’s finest work during his Prairie period. This world-renowned composition of buildings and landscape will have you swooning at every turn. A walk through the iconic complex reveals stained glass windows such as the famed “Tree of Life”, original furniture, a plant-filled conservatory and plenty of low-slung horizontal lines. Not many cities can boast that they have a Wright building located right in their backyards.
The complex includes a museum store that offers up an artfully curated collection of Wright-inspired home décor as well as fine jewelry, accessories and books. From replicas of the famous “Midway Garden Sprite” statues to beautiful Japanese Tea Sets, there is something for YOU and everyone on your list. The creativity doesn’t stop there; you will find a Buffalo love section that’s out-of-this-world, boasting some major Buffalo pride.
A hidden “gem” of a shopping experience awaits visitors as they begin or end their tour, or, as many savvy locals know, this gift shop just isn’t for Buffalo tourists. You can shop the shop anytime for exquisite gifts of the highest quality for any occasion. It’s the Wright thing!
