Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He designed simple, well-made household furnishings and -forward-looking interiors, which he promoted through his magazine, (1901-1916). The rugs used in his interiors are arguably the most under-studied of all the decorative arts of the Arts and Crafts movement. considers both the rugs that recommended and designs by artists who influenced the work and philosophy of Stickley. Among the rugs discussed are works by British Arts and Crafts luminaries William Morris and Gavin Morton, druggets imported from India, Navajo blankets and rugs, and rare Crex and Abnákee examples. This essential publication illustrates the use of rugs in Craftsman settings and provides detailed descriptions and color photographs of more than sixty rugs drawn from the collection of Crab Tree Farm.
