Decorating with Mission and Arts and Crafts and Table Lamps
The Arts and Crafts movement dates back to the late 1800s in England. Embracing hand-made and natural materials against the industrial and mass-produced, the design style quickly became a consumer favorite. In America, an offshoot of the look became know as Mission style or Craftsman style. Lamp designs featured strong, simple lines, warm bronze finishes, motifs drawn from nature, and beautiful art glass shades that were hand-crafted.
Today, the Arts and Crafts or Mission lamps style remains as popular as ever. Shades with wheat grass or geometric straight-lined patterns capture the essence of the style, as do the warm bronze and oak wood bases. Look for designs that come with built-in night lights in the bases for added functionally and style.
