Mission

The Mission style is an offshoot of the Arts and Crafts movement that evolved in England as a reaction to the stylistic excesses of the Victorian period and to the decline in craftsmanship caused by the Industrial Revolution. Led by designers like Gustav Stickley, American furniture makers adopted preindustrial work methods to create functional, unadorned furniture. Mission-style pieces featured exposed joints, native wood species (often oak) and a generally more rustic look. Mission furniture greatly influenced major architects such as Charles and Henry Greene and Frank Lloyd Wright
