Not each Arts and Crafts was simple and boxlike

Arts and Crafts household furniture was in style from the late 19th to the early 20th century. It was really different from the ornate models of the previously Victorian era. It experienced the edge of new applications and mass creation. The Arts and Crafts movement promoted competent craftsmanship, high quality get the job done and very simple, strong styles. 

Iconic Arts and Crafts and Mission workshops, like Stickley and Roycroft, are recognised for their uncomplicated home furniture built in dim oak with minimal ornamentation. This would not necessarily mean that just about every Arts and Crafts piece is a basic, heavy box! 

This umbrella stand, which offered for $300 at a Selkirk auction in St. Louis has a mild, intricate glimpse. Even so, its design takes advantage of straight traces and very simple geometric designs. Its ball feet build a strong seem and, as an umbrella stand, it was made with use in mind.
