What is Arts & Crafts Furniture?
Simple, graceful, and handmade: that’s the essence of the American Arts & Crafts furniture style. The Arts & Crafts (or Craftsman) philosophy, which became popular over a century ago, grew out of a rejection of complicated Victorian era designs produced by industrial processes. People were rediscovering an appreciation for simpler, functional, handmade wooden furniture crafted by skilled artisans.
Today’s Craftsman Community in Vermont
Although the Arts & Crafts movement began at the turn of the 20th century, it’s still going strong today in Vermont! The Green Mountain State (Fine Furniture Capital of America) is increasingly recognized as our country’s leader in high quality, handmade wooden furniture, boasting over 1000 small furniture companies plus 2000 independent woodworkers operating out of studios, barns and garages.
