A must-see for anyone interested in interior design, this compelling portrait traces the rise, fall and resurrection of visionary designer, architect and lifestyle entrepreneur Gustav Stickley, the father of the American Arts and Crafts movement. Much more than just a furniture maker, Stickley founded perhaps the first truly American style at the turn of the 20th century—embracing innovative ideas about craft, workmanship and natural beauty that transformed the way we design our homes. From his iconic Craftsman houses to his groundbreaking Manhattan store and more, Gustav Stickley: American Craftsman examines the evolution of Stickley's philosophy, his dramatic demise in the wake of World War I, and eventual rebirth and recognition for the movement he inspired.
