That's because from 1901 to 1916, Wisconsin-born furniture maker Gustav Stickley spread that image in his magazine The Craftsman
, which offered house plans of the same name, along with the stained-oak chairs and tables, hammered-copper hardware, and homespun textiles to go in them. He was spreading the back-to-natural gospel of the English-born Arts and Crafts movement with an American twist. His designs—and new ones inspired by them—have kept their appeal. Here we show you how you can bring some of that handmade character into your own home, whether it's a bungalow or a condo.
