Topic tags/keywords: artsandcrafts craftsman gustav stickley greene furniture design

I’m really intrigued by the Arts & Crafts movement that happened in the early 1900’s as it relates to furniture design. I am particularly impressed with Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman movement and what the Greene & Greene Bros. company did for the times. I say that, but most of what I’ve seen has mostly just been been inspired by the original designs. Are there some good references out there I can look to for these inspiring designs? I would like to design things based on a particular style, but I’m also willing to use somebody else’s designs from this period.

Olaf – Woodcraft has some great books that are collections of original design sketches and plans.
