The Charnley-Persky House was designed by Louis Sullivan but we’ve included it on this website because of Sullivan’s influence on Wright and Wright was a junior draftsman for Sullivan at the time. The houses is also part of the Illinois Frank Lloyd Wright Trail.

There is also a Louis Sullivan designed home located near Wright’s Gilmore House in Madison.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
