New Arts & Crafts Movement Frank Lloyd Wright Mission Prairie style oak built in sofa window seat

This design was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright designs, and incorporates many of his design touches. This could be made as a freestanding piece, or could be built-in, as many Arts & Crafts sofas were. The bottom design shows a pair of these built in along 1 wall. Made from oak, with upholstered seat cushions in your fabric of choice. Made to order.

Above left is a built-in window sofa for a London client. The initial design, which had more of a Frank Lloyd Wright feel to it, progressed till we ended up with the finished piece, which drew inspiration from a sofa by English Designer maker Eric Sharpe, shown right. The sofa was designed to include some storage, and they had end bookcases & cupboards under the seats. Finished off with Morris's Willow Bough fabric. The sofa was made from oak.


Stickley style sofa;
New reproduction Wm Morris Arts & Crafts Movement green painted chesterfield sofa Arts & Crafts Movement L & G Stickley Mission Prairie style panelled oak 3 seater sofa

The sofa above right is by the US makers L & JG Stickley, c.1912. It has a classic Mission style, but the panelling makes it look more spohisticated than similar slatted back & sides sofas. Another good design element is the way the arm rests extend around the sofa on 3 sides, giving a very horizontal look to the piece. And this sofa actually looks comfortable to sit on with loose seat, back & side cushions. The green sofa above left is a Morris Artisan piece, and you can clearly see the influence on the later style of sofa by Stickley. We can reproduce these sofas for an authentic interior.
