Description

Grand Rapids, Michigan was the furniture capital of the country throughout the period when the Arts and Crafts movement popularized mission furniture. This book shows us in brief chapters and in hundreds of rare and vintage photos (all with edifying captions) not only what Grand Rapids and its furniture industry looked like around the turn of the 20th century but also how the industry started (back in 1836) and what the industry looks like today. (Yes, they still make furniture in Grand Rapids!)
