Excerpt from Catalogue of Craftsman Furniture Made by Gustav Stickley at the Craftsman Workshops, Eastwood, N. Y: July, 1910
Because of the sturdiness and beauty of our American white oak, I chose it as the best wood for the kind of furniture I had in mind, and the style, such as it was, developed naturally from the character of the wood and the application to it of the most direct principles of construe tion. The result was that I soon found that there was a quality in my plain furniture which took hold of nearly all thinking people as it had taken hold of me, and that in giving expression to what might have been considered an impractical ideal under present-day conditions, I had hit upon an idea which was destined to have a far greater success than even I had hoped for it.
