In recent years, the design world has seen somewhat of a resurgence in the Arts & Crafts movement with more naturalistic wallpapers and fabrics being introduced alongside pieces of rustic furniture that emphasize simplicity and quality. The movement itself, which dates back to the latter half of the 19th century, was a direct response to industrialization and the excess embraced by Victorian design.
Today, we’re fortunate to be seeing a greater interest in craftsmanship, how things are made, and the quality of the materials used. This, of course, is not limited to Arts & Crafts-inspired designs, but extends across a variety of movements and aesthetics. Though Huston & Company has always been influenced by an array of movements, we thought we’d highlight some of our favorite Arts & Crafts furniture designs made of solid materials, featuring simple, yet elegant, lines.
Our founder, Bill Huston, has always been drawn to the Arts & Crafts aesthetic because it “focuses on simple forms and details, historically highlighting hand craftsmanship,” while also appreciating that “the designs are for everyday use.”
Huston & Company’s designs focus on simplicity, integrating Arts & Crafts, Shaker, Scandinavian, and Japanese aesthetics to create furniture that is unique and timeless.
