Type in STICKLEY or you could look at some of the homes famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright built. Often he used Mission style/arts & crafts style furniture to furnish them. Taunton Press, IE: Fine Woodworking Magazine has a lot of plans and Ideas on their website. If you aren’t a member you could maybe ask your parents if you can subscribe.

I think Dusty (or someone) started a series on here about different styles. Not sure how far that got.
I’ll see if I can track it down.

There are numerous books on the Gutenberg Project about how to make Mission…and others….there are lots of download books…though often the links to the images in the files is broken…or maybe I don’t know how to link them…but the images come through…you might have to open the images with a different program or window. If you download the .zip file the images are separate, but they are complete…you just have to open them separately from the text.
