Check out the offerings from Lee Valley.
They have several books and many plans available.
They also have a good selection of Mission style hardware.

Check out Rex Alexander, Kevin Rodel, Robert Lang, New Yankee Workshop, etc. I built the tabouret tables from Popular Mechanics, but most of the plans are rather rustic looking for my taste. I’ve bought a boat-load of plans from because they had a bulk discount and a lot of their stuff is en suite. You have to be careful with their plans, as they do some things out of order in my book (e.g. when I was making my gentleman's chest, they said to build a cabinet door using rails and stiles, then several steps later, build side panels using the same setup, requiring you to do things twice). and anything from Taunton Press/Fine Woodworking is worth a look see.
