I Discover Arts & Crafts Style Screen Doors

Simplicity, straight clean lines, subtle ornamentation are elements that made Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural styles so popular. Arts & Craft, Mission home design, and Prairie Style architecture embraced clean progressive lines and were popular from the 1890's up until 1919. These classic design elements are experiencing a resurgence today making PCA's similarly clean, straight-line screen door designs in the "Falling Water" collection worthy of particular attention. These Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired screen door styles are fitting for homes that have similar clean, straight forward lines reminiscent of the groundbreaking home design of America's most famed architect.

I Decorative Screen Doors to Match Prairie Style House

Frank Lloyd Wright created the term "Organic Architecture." He believed that architecture should be suited to its environment and be a product of its place, purpose, and time. He insisted that the home and all of its elements should compliment its surroundings and draw inspiration from natural elements. And nowhere was this philosophy more evident than in Fallingwater, a home he built in Western Pennsylvania for department store magnate, Edgar Kauffman.

The PCA Falling Water collection is designed to honor Wright's clean designs and enhance your home and its surroundings. Like all of Wright's work, PCA's Falling Water collection combines beauty with exceptional strength and durability. If you're looking for Arts & Crafts style screen doors, the Falling Water collection is the perfect choice. It's also a design match if you're looking for a decorative screen door for a Mission style house.

This isn't the first PCA screen door collection inspired by architectural styles. PCA's St. Michaels collection is designed using influences from Northeastern shores of the Atlantic. The Bourbon Street collection is inspired by the ironwork in New Orleans, and the Parisian collection is based on French design cues.
