  Mission furniture is the generic term for Arts and Crafts Period furniture manufactured during the fist two decades of the 20th Century. Another generic term is "Stickley furniture". There were many makers of mission furniture, but the majority of makers fell into three categories; high quality craft firms and furniture manufacturers such as Gustav Stickley and Charles Limbert, lesser quality mass-producers of mission style furniture with the right look, but of poor quality and the home enthusiast or individual craftsman.

In the early 1970's the Arts and Crafts Period limbert bookcaseand mission furniture were rediscovered by a whole new generation of collectors, designers and homeowners, who appreciated the clean designs and unusual forms of the furniture and later embraced the ideals of the movement.

Today, the revival of the Arts and Crafts movement continues and has outlasted the 20-plus year run of the original movement. One of the few original furniture manufacturers from the time that is still in operation is the Stickley Company of Manlius, NY. Stickley is the former L&JG Stickley Company.

On this website we will feature the products of single person craft shops as well as larger enterprises producing high-quality contemporary mission furniture.
