Mission style furniture, often grouped with the Arts and Crafts movement, started being made in the mid 19th century. Mission furniture is known for its strength, beauty, and permanency. It is plain and simple, with little decoration. Chairs, tables and beds are made with wood slats, and legs are usually straight. Pulls, latches, and hinges are usually made of pewter. The philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement of hand-made products of integrity, utility, and simple style fits well with Amish values and makes mission-style furniture a natural choice for Amish woodworkers.
Characteristics and History of Mission Furniture
Mission furniture first became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Americans had grown weary of the mass-produced and over-embellished styles of the Victorian era, turning instead to the simple smooth lines of Mission furniture.
The design aesthetic of Mission furniture celebrates simple horizontal and vertical lines, with flat panels that bring out the natural beauty and grain of the wood. While Oak is a popular choice for Mission bookcases, Mission vanities and other pieces, we also offer other traditional hardwoods, such as Cherry and Maple.
The history of our Amish craftsmen and their care and attention to detail perfectly complements the design aesthetic of the Mission style.
Our handcrafted mission sofas, mission barstools and other pieces allow you to customize your choice to your individual style and décor. Many of our pieces allow you to choose your preferred fittings, while others are offered in a range of sizes. You can then choose from a range of different hardwoods and select your preferred finish and stain to put the final touches on your new Mission hutch, Mission bookcases or other piece of heirloom quality Mission furniture. Don’t spend too long worrying about the perfect stain … we’ll send you a sample of your choice when you order so you can ensure it fits with your interior design.
