- Made in America
What’s it all about?
The Craftsman style we know today developed from the American Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th century. The Craftsman style creates cozy and inviting interiors. Casegood pieces are sturdy and built to last. Since they’re made of wood, they’re heavier than same-sized pieces made of slighter materials. They adhere to simple lines and flat panels that accentuate wood’s innate character.

Bring it on home
This look is big on functionality and durability. When it comes to incorporating Craftsman style into your home, it’s all about the wood. The traditional woodworking techniques lend familiarity and stylistic continuity from generations before. Today’s Craftsman pieces can often be custom-made to exact specifications, which adds a personal touch.
Surround yourself with high-quality oak or cherry wood stained with a warm shade to further enhance the natural grain. This creates a welcoming interior with a captivating style. You can also take a cue from Craftman’s namesake, Craftsman homes. Nooks, window seats and built-in storage are perfect ways to bring the Craftsman aesthetic to your space.
