Arts and Crafts Furniture
Craftsmen Studio is dedicated to building heirloom quality Arts and Crafts Furniture and lighting that honors the original designs and craftsman of the American Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900's. Arts and Crafts style furniture is based on the idea that fine details and ornamentation should only exist in harmony with the construction, functionality, and durability of the furniture; that the true beauty of fine furnishing comes from carefully selected materials and simplicity of design. Utilizing high-quality, hand selected hardwoods, each piece is individually hand-cut and assembled using traditional joinery techniques such as pinned mortise and tenon, dovetail drawers, and splined joints. These methods are consistent with the works of original Arts and Crafts furniture makers such as Gustav Stickley, Charles Limbert, Greene and Greene, and others, whose furnishings have stood the test of time - still retaining their beauty, strength, and functionality for more than a century.
Greene and Greene Lighting
I began reproducing light fixtures by Greene and Greene about fifteen years ago and was one of the first craftsmen to offer these fixtures on a production basis. Using the original designs and traditional joinery techniques these pieces are all individually hand crafted from start to finish. I have built fixtures for craftsman style homes around the world, my work has made it into several magaizine, museums, and most importantly client homes.
Custom work is available; rather you would like a different size an offered fixture, completely custom design, reproduction yet offered, or a custom glass design to make your fixture completely unique. Each fixture is individually handmade giving me the ability to make a unique piece just for you. The lighting will be the most predominantly displayed and functional art work in your home and should be something you admired.
