"Arts and Crafts Style brings together clean lines and fine craftsmanship."

Arts and Crafts style interior design revolves around finely crafted furniture and interior features - usually of wood.

Arts and Crafts Style Cabinet In the United States, a variation of this style that became popular through the years is called Mission Style.

Arts and Crafts interior elements feature prominent straight lines and a lack of excessive embellishment seen in some other traditional and classic styles. The careful craftsmanship of materials often provides a hint of native culture, particularly in the Mission Style variation which gives a nod to Spanish influence.

Geometric forms of stained glass-like mica establish a strong sense of Arts and Crafts when used for lamp shades, windows or panel inserts in cabinetry.

This style is versatile enough to work within a traditional or transitional environment.

Style Tips:
