From metalwork to glassware, furniture to ceramics, utilitarian objects in the hands of Morris, Frank Lloyd Wright, Gustav Stickley and Emile Gallé became beautiful as well as functional.Art was harnessed to a new concept of interior design with textiles, wallpaper, furniture and lovingly handprinted books featuring the hallmarks of the movement: foliate motifs, birds and richly jeweled colors.Through seemingly commonplace objects such as fireplace implements, pottery and the new electric lighting, Arts and Crafts style was delivered directly into the home and Doulton, Liberty and Tiffany became the household names they remain today.Including a comprehensive reference section, Christie's Arts and Crafts Style is a book for all entusiasts of the movement, collectors and historians alike.
