A little bit of background: But before we get too specific, let’s get some background information on the mission style. This style was part of the Arts and Crafts movement which was inspired by the writings of John Ruskin and the romanticism that surrounded craftsmen that took pride in his own personal handiwork. The Arts and Crafts movement occurred both with the British and in the Americas, and it is great to know that furniture that dated back into such important eras of history are still popular today. The irony of the mission style in arts and crafts is that it originally was a search for uniqueness and authenticism in the products made during the era of the Industrial revolution that produced duplicates of products that lost its spirit of individuality. So, ironically the mission style furniture icon of the Arts and Crafts movement has been reversed of its original meaning in that it is now mass produced and merchandised, and thus losing some of its uniqueness that people originally sought. Nevertheless, it is still a beautiful piece of furniture designed as such to add nice lines and art to a person’s home. And one important thing is that in the simple manufacturing process that these items are made today, much of the furniture is still handcrafted other than the machinery used to cut and handle the raw material of wood. Better yet, the items are made with more environmentally friendly wood production which avoids the need to waste solid wood pieces when crafting the wood frames. The current products are crafted by hand for the shape and style of the furniture, yet finished to perfection using modern staining and painting technologies to make strong, stylish, yet un-wasteful furniture.
