Stickley Furniture is one of those brands that has made a name for itself beyond just the high quality of their furniture, but for being innovators on entire movements. Gustav Stickley was an ambitious first generation American who went from working in his uncle’s chair factory to starting Stickley Brothers & Company in 1883. After five years he was on to the next venture, Stickley & Simonds. During the 1890s he was a foreman of furniture operations for the Auburn State Prison. Right before the turn of the century he started the Gustave Stickley Company and worked with designer Henry Wilkinson to create a line of furniture in the Arts and Crafts style, changed the name of his company to United Crafts, and published a catalogue called The Craftsman.

The hand-rubbed finishes applied to Stickley pieces enhance the natural beauty of the solid wood construction. While the style of furniture the firm was best known for was often referred to as being Mission style, Stickley himself found that term to be misleading.
