Description

In the Arts & Crafts Style

With over 100,000 copies sold, In the Arts & Crafts Style is a design-bookshelf classic. Now available in paperback, this accessible and informative volume traces the movement's historical origins and evolution, with special emphasis on major designers, such as William Morris and Gustav Stickley, and their signature pieces. Descriptions of Arts and Crafts elements, from furniture to fabrics to decorative objects, give an overview of the style and illuminate its continuing influence. Plus, case studies showcase later, related styles, such as California Mission and Farmhouse Craftsman. Warm, detailed photography and engaging text make this volume a must for antiques collectors, decorators, and Arts and Crafts enthusiasts.
