The Meyer May House is a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house in the Heritage Hill district in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Meyer May House was commissioned in 1908 by Meyer S. May president of May's clothing store in Grand Rapids and his wife Sophie. The house's appearance stands in contrast to the Victorian houses typical of the period and the Heritage Hill neighborhood. It is stylistically typical of Wright's Prairie houses, a two story, T-plan constructed of pale brick, with hip roofs and long broad eves, art glass windows and skylights. The house was purchased by Steelcase, the office furniture company, in 1985 and meticulously restored and opened to the public in 1987. Today, complete with original furnishings and faithfully executed reproductions, the Meyer May house provides the rare opportunity to experience a Prairie house exactly as Frank Lloyd Wright intended. —
