Arts and Crafts (Mission) Furniture

The Arts and Crafts movement rejected the industrialization of furniture manufacture. Arts and Crafts furniture was very popular in the United States. Popularity of this style peaked around 1900. Arts and Crafts furniture emphasized simple, utilitarian design; a reduction of excessive decoration; use of traditional materials; and the employment of "honest" craftsmanship. Mission furniture was inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement and designed by American furniture designer, Gustav Stickley. Another important American designer of furniture and architect of this time period was Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright's furniture designs reflected his ideas in architecture and he often designed furniture specifically for the buildings he designed.

BLUE MOUNTAIN CUSTOM WOOD PRODUCTS currently produces custom Arts and Crafts pieces in the tradition that Mr. Stickley would have been proud of.
