Be Curious, Explore, Go Places

The Arts and Crafts movement originated in England in the mid-19th century as a reaction against the dehumanizing effects of the industrial revolution

. It was an attitude and approach to problem-solving that advocated no specific style

. The movement encompassed many art forms, including architecture, furniture, fabrics, and decorative arts

. The ideas of English art critic John Ruskin and English designer William Morris were given expression in designs for houses, furniture, and other decorative arts

. Frank Lloyd Wright, an American architect, was influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and incorporated its principles into his work

. Wright’s interiors and furniture remain some of the most famous among American designers, and he tended to design everything when given a commission, including furnishings that became works of art in themselves

. The Arts and Crafts movement also influenced architecture in the Midwest, where it overlaps and is integrated with Prairie Style and Bungalow architecture
