Arts & Crafts~'Mission' Style
The 'Mission' style of the Arts & Crafts Movement was an American adaption of the
British style. The design work of William Morris, CFA Voysey, the guilds,
the studio magazine greatly influenced a generation of Americans, who took up
the ideals and styling and made their own distinct style from them.
Designer craftsmen like Gustav Stickley and Hubbard adapted the British
style with American tastes for rugged furniture, especially the solid but basic
furniture of the Mission churches. Whereas in England the Arts & Crafts never
got past working for the wealthiest clients, the American style went mass market.
To paraphrase CR Ashbee, ' Britain sewed the seed and America reaped the Harvest'.
The Mission style is now as popular as it was in it's own day. We have tried
to show you a selection of what we can supply in this style, but we can design
and produce anything you require.
Shown below are a selection of coffee, side and lamps tables we
can produce for you, to whatever size you require.
