Identifying Arts and Crafts Furniture

Style 1900 Magazine

The Craftsman magazine, which Gustav Stickley published from 1901 to 1916, was the premier periodical of the Arts and Crafts movement in America. The magazine detailed to readers the merits of the Arts and Crafts lifestyle, which included hard work, education and civic-mindedness. Also included in the Arts and Crafts philosophy was an embrace of nature. His Arts and Crafts style furniture was, and indeed still is, regarded for its organic simplicity.

This comfortable oak reclining chair with leather upholstery, made around 1901–1902, reflects Stickley's debt to the designs of English Arts and Crafts leader William Morris, and his own commitment to well-designed and well-made furniture. When Stickley talked about "the strong-fibered sturdy oak” from which he fashioned furniture, he was also thinking about the moral fiber of the American people, says exhibition curator Kevin W. Tucker. Collection of Gregg G. Seibert.
