Mission Style Furniture
Originating in the late 19th century, Mission Style furniture has simple lines and flat panels that accentuate the grain of wood. Its origins trace back to 1894. As a reaction to Victorian Times, people needed relief. Therefore, they looked to the Mission Style for upright, solid, and suggestive of entirely handcrafted work.
This style of furniture represents the ideals of simplicity of design, integrity of construction, and truth to the materials. Thus, the joints are often exposed and the natural characteristics of the wood are emphasized, with flat panelling and finishes that accentuate the grain. The exposed joints and highlighted grain patterns are often complimented with metal loop drawer pulls and hinges.
Traditionally, Mission Style furniture has been built with red or white oak wood (often quarter-sawn). However other woods like cherry, maple, walnut, and ash have been used more commonly in Mission Furniture over the last several decades.
