This was my first Arts & Crafts project. I learned a lot building this. This chair has been in daily use for over 25 years and looks as good if not better and is more comfortable than when it was new (when this picture was taken.) Here are some additional photos and some particular points of interest.
Side Profile - note how the rails have a 1" slope from front to back, this creates a subtle yet interesting look.
So easy to adjust the back tilt angle - just pop out the support peg and place it in a different hole. Repeat for the other side.
(With a little dexterity and practice, you'll be able to master it without leaving your seat.)
This is a lovely style variation on the Spindle Morris Chair. It features the smooth sweeping arms and a more elegant and elaborate side panel section. It also has a matching foot stool with similar detailing.
I was quite proud of this chair's arms, notice how I was able to book match the Left and right arms to almost perfect mirror images.
Back adjustment uses the same mechanism as the Spindle Morris chair shown above.
You won't find chair arms like this coming from a factory in China!
Matching Bow Arm Stool. Upholstery would normally match the chair.
If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
This little table has more finesse and subtle detail than most other Arts & Crafts products. Note especially how the post corbels flow into the base with its angled tapered base. I love this piece.
This floor lamp is another classic A & C piece that marries two disciplines - wood working and stained glass. I had this shade custom made by a lady who lives not far away, A wide range of shades are available from lighting stores and stain glass artisans in your area.
The lamp is a collection of elements held together by the electrical conduit running up the center. The bulb location and height can easity be adjusted to suite the shad of your choice. This base is solid wood to better provide weight and stability to the lamp.
The Arts and Crafts style column is tapered from bottom to top and features fluted faces. The top is completed with a beveled crown.
At 48"(122cm) x 36"(91.5cm) this is a beast of a table, but it's also probably the most used piece of furniture in the house. I love the design, expecially the large lower level - great for storing table books, chess set etc.
Fortunately the size can be changed almost infinitely - your choice.
It's a good sized piece measuring 36" wide x 27" high with a mirror surface 29" wide x 19" high. Either by itself or flanked with a pair of wall sconces, this mirror will make an attractive addition to any wall. Although finished with varnish, this piece would also look great, maybe even better depending on taste, with an oil finish.
The top rail on this mirror has some of the prettiest ray-fleck I've seen. I also love the gentle sweeps and subtle corner details of this piece. Size can be adjusted as required.
Lots of variations are possilbe with mirrors, we can customise to suit almost any need.
If you need a snooze after dinner or great place to chat with friends, this is the instrument of choice. At 7ft long it easitly accomodates 3 people anyone 6'2" for that snooze. The finished back panels look great in an open room.
If you have the room these Chairs perfectly complement Prairie Settle
A simpler more rustic design for this Settle. Perfect for your home in the mountains. Matching chairs also available.
This was a really fun project. A Client who is an avid art collector, wanted a set of shelves to display his very large collection of art book and several of his smaller are pieces. He had very specific dimensions for the piece and wanted a certain flair but nothing that would overwhelm the art.
After numerous iterations we settled on this design. Mostly classic Arts and Crafts style but with several Greene & Greene touches added to the backside stretches (shown here and so as not to be too dominant.)
One on these on each side of the glass double doors entering into his art room was perfect.
