Though the functional beauty of the Arts and Crafts movement has long been a part of American culture, it is now revitalized by simplicity seekers trying to counteract the fast pace of contemporary living. The elegant simplicity of Craftsman ideals is time defying, as the rooms and furnishings of The Beautiful Necessity: Decorating With Arts and Crafts will reveal. From the traditional–Greene and Greene, Gustav Stickley, Frank Lloyd Wright, and others–to the contemporary–Berkely Mills, Warren Hiles, East/West Furniture Design, and more–the Arts and Crafts Movement is represented. All 140 exquisite photographs demonstrate how the Craftsman style has brought stunning warmth yet utilitarian ease to homes past and present.
