CURATOR'S CORNER

Craftsman Workshops - Syracuse, New York  (1904-1916)

The Arts and Crafts movement swept upon Gustav Stickley so quickly that by 1904 he dropped not only the name of his company but a vowel from his name.  Gustav had been irrevocably connected to The Craftsman, the magazine that was propelling the new American Arts and Crafts movement.  So The United Crafts became The Craftsman Workshops in order to unify the furniture and the published ideals of the company.  This is the company for which Gustav is now best known.  His furniture was held in the highest regard and his magazine reached a growing audience for a time.  Gustav's desire to advance beyond furniture-making led him to overextend his operations.  This, combined with changes in American taste during the Nineteen-teens led to the company's bankruptcy in 1916.
