In October of 1888, a small group of English philosophers, artists, and architects established the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society and thus began a movement that would spread worldwide over the next few decades.

This movement effectively unites social reform, architecture, art, and craftsmanship. The Arts and Crafts room is a more simple design in the manner of Mission style furniture. This follows the styles of Frank Lloyd Wright and William Morris; who is considered the “Father of Arts and Crafts” in Britain, whereas Gustave Stickley was the “Father” of the movement in America. Furniture was simple, functional, and constructed of local materials lending itself to the beauty of nature and not machine produced. Charles Lewis Tiffany (the father of Louis) 1829-1902, who began Tiffany and Co., teamed with Thomas Edison in making footlights for theaters.

After his death in 1902, his son Louis, began making stained glass for lamps that are prized for their beauty even today. This room is a quiet space in the rear of the house and simplistic in style.

This room tucked away in the rear of the house is decorated in the manner of Gustav Stickley or Frank Lloyd Wright as in the early part of the 20th Century. Furniture was more simple, streamlined without heavy carvings or decorative features as in the Victorian era. It is a quiet, calm room in soothing earth tones, queen size bed, and has a private en-suite bathroom with a large shower area. Individually controlled heat and air, TV and in-room sink. All toiletries included, hair dryer and linens as well.
