What did the inside of the bungalow look like? Simple, functional furnishings were the fashion of the day. Take a look at our interior designer article from 1917, describing the mission style furniture that graced Arts and Crafts homes.
Hand-crafted items made in the Arts & Crafts and Mission styles, including tile frames, picture frames, doorbell covers, clocks and much more. I have over 30 years experience in furniture making, specializing in designs inspired by Mackintosh, Limbert, Greene and Greene, Stickley and Roycroft. All items are made from hand-selected solid quarter-sawn white oak and cherry, then stained in colors representative of turn of the century works. I can craft custom items in both quarter-sawn oak and cherry, at prices well below most custom framers.

The Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society made new and ambitious claims for the public significance of decorative art. Although the nineteenth century witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of display spaces available to artists, these opportunities were enjoyed mainly by painters and, to some extent, sculptors. Artists whose medium fell into the category of the so-called decorative arts (which included ceramics, textiles, metalwork, furniture, and glassware, among other media) benefited less from these developments and felt marginalized by the system. The imbalance had both financial and ideological implications. The lack of opportunities for public exposure meant that decorative artists struggled to market their work to potential purchasers. At the same time, many such artists craved the social and intellectual status attained by fine artists when their work received critical acclaim at the exhibitions of the Royal Academy, the Society of Artists, or the Grosvenor Gallery, to name a few examples. (See the relevant BRANCH essays for more information on these institutions, for example ) While decorative artists did find ways of displaying their work—at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and its successors, for instance, or by contributing to public interiors such as the refreshment rooms at the South Kensington Museum—there was no regular exhibition venue where they could present their work to the same public, and on the same terms, as their painter colleagues could at prestigious fine art exhibitions. (On the Great Exhibition, see .) This was the gap that the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society was designed to fill.

The Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society was founded in 1887 and opened its first exhibition at the New Gallery, Regent Street, on October 1, 1888. Arts and Crafts exhibitions were held annually until 1890. When it became apparent that more than a year was needed to generate a new supply of exhibits, the exhibitions continued triennially until 1899. A gap of four years then took place—explained by the Society’s involvement in the 1902 Turin Exhibition—before the next exhibition in 1903, after which the triennial pattern was re-adopted, with occasional longer gaps. The Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society kept its name until 1959, when it became the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
