The Arts and Crafts style of art and design started in the last half of the 1800s, and is still popular today. Architects, woodworkers, stained-glass makers, metalworkers, and textile makers designed and created high-quality houses and household objects that were not only useful and sturdy but also beautiful to look at and live with. These artists didn’t like useless decorations and details in furniture, lamps, fabrics, wall coverings, and windows, and they didn’t like houses that all looked the same. They used natural materials, such as brick, wood, or stone, often found in the areas near the homes they were designing and building. The Arts and Crafts house tends to be simple, beautiful, well built, and look as though it is a natural part of its surroundings.
