Detailed Description

English Arts & Crafts Furniture: Projects & Techniques for the Modern Maker. Author, Nancy R. Hiller

English Arts & Crafts Furniture explores the Arts & Crafts movement with a unique focus on English designers. Through examination of details, techniques, and historical context, as well as projects, you will discover what sets these designers and their work apart from those that came before and after, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the Arts & Crafts movement and its influence.

Three complete furniture builds (using modern tools and construction methods) provide a glimpse into the breadth of ideals encompassed by Arts & Crafts:

  • Voysey's two heart chair, with its woven seat and sharp finials, combines simplicity of form with an elegant uprightness
  • A striking sideboard design from Harris Lebus, one of England's largest furniture manufacturers at the turn of the century, was not just imposing, but affordable for a middle-class market
  • Gimson's hayrake table marries rural allusions, challenging joinery, and exuberant hand-carving in a project that is a joy to build

More an expression of social and economic ideals than any specific design aesthetic, the Arts & Crafts movement encompassed a staggering variety of work. English Arts & Crafts Furniture, for the woodworker and furniture aficionado, provides fresh perspective into an exciting moment in design history.
