Frank Lloyd Wright built a lot of, Ok I'm going to say it, "crap" perment fixed furniture designs like that. If you ever go to his Taliesan West house in Scottsdale, don't make a special trip, that is exactly how the living room is built. Long built in bench seats against the wall with some funky shelving units.
The killer of all this is on the tours photography is STRICTLY forbidden. Like someone is really going to build that stuff today. The FLW people are friggin insane and about 60 years out of touch. As a furniture builder you can't even buy or get plans for their chairs or other pieces - luckily.
FLW was an great artist but a poor architect. The overall plans "look great" but I don't think they were designed to actually be live in.
