Toward 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.
Gustav Stickley, his brothers L & J.G. Stickley, Roycroft, and Limberts were among the finest of these 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 to give them restful, pleasing and warm environment.
We have been prominent dealers (and passionate collectors) of Arts and Crafts Antiques for over 25 years. The addition of fine quality 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 entertainment centers.
Although Arts and Crafts reproduction furniture had been available for several years, many of our clients had difficulty finding pieces 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 reproductions- furniture
We welcome custom 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 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.
Workmanship on all items is guaranteed. Quality work and customer satisfaction have been an important part of our success since 1985.
