We have been prominent dealers (and passionate collectors) of Antique Arts and Crafts furniture and accessories for over 35 years. The addition of fine quality mission oak reproductions to our business grew from requests from clients for furniture forms that did not exist at the turn of the century, such as; king size beds, coffee tables and custom entertainment centers.

Arts & Crafts FurnitureToward the end of the Nineteenth Century the age of Industrialization had replaced craftsmanship with factory assembly lines mass producing Victorian style furniture. In reaction to the highly ornamental, poorly made work, arose a reform known as the Arts and Crafts Movement and, ultimately, a new "American Style" focusing on integrity of structure and simplicity of form.
Stickley Furniture and Craftsman FurnitureGustav Stickley, his brothers L & J.G. Stickley and Roycroft, and Limberts Furniture Company were among the finest of the Arts & Crafts period furniture makers. They believed ornamentation should exist only as an emphasis of the construction, teaching that beauty lay in those forms and materials which make for simplicity, individuality and strength. Their desire was to provide for the homeowner functional designs made of natural woods (primarily oak) to give them a restful, pleasing and warm environment.
Contemporary Mission Style FurnitureAlthough Arts and Crafts reproduction furniture had been available for several years, many of our clients had difficulty finding furniture comparable to their antiques in materials, construction, and finishes. Our success in helping our clients complete their environments, coupled with the diminishing supply and escalating prices for many desirable forms, led to the expansion of our line of contempoary reproduction furniture. We welcome custom furniture orders and invite you to be a part of the creative process. Changes in size and design can be made to any piece in this catalogue in order to meet your needs. We also make mission style sofa beds in queen and king sizes, many styles of dining tables, computer and lamp tables, stereo and entertainment centers, china cabinets, bookcases, nightstands, billiards chairs, and other styles of settles.
