Your Guide to Mission Style Furniture
So, what is Mission Style Design anyways? Mission home design first hit the scene at the turn of the 20th century. Master craftsman began to showcase their work with sturdy, classic wood furniture highlighting the horizontal and vertical shapes and natural wood grain details. These strong, sturdy pieces usually display rectangular spindles, eased edges, and practical design. This style has also been referred to as “craftsman style” due to the unique handmade look and sturdy woodworking.
Creating a Handcrafted Home
To achieve that handcrafted style in your home design, look for natural wood pieces that highlight the wood grain. Traditionally, these pieces are made of oak wood, but can also commonly be found with cherry and maple wood. Dining tables are a great way to highlight natural wood elements in your home. Look for pieces with rectangular legs and a tabletop that focuses on horizontal and vertical lines. Credenzas and side tables add storage and style to your home, improving functionality and design! Flat cabinet fronts or shaker-style cabinet doors are a key Mission Style detail that adds just the right touch of design to let the natural wood shine. Avoid painted furniture and instead, focus on different natural stains.
If you’re looking for the classic Mission design without the natural wood highlights, look for a painted piece with the same rectangular characteristics. Bedroom sets offer the same overall aesthetic but often with painted finishes. Linen and natural earth toned colored bed sheets and home décor can help create a cozy theme throughout the room for your bedroom sanctuary.
