The room was created based on the living room of Mr. and Mrs. Francis W. Little, who owned a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Prairie Style lake house in Wayzata, Minnesota. This particular Teco umbrella stand became part of the display based on a recollection of the room by Eleanor Stevenson, the Littles' daughter.
