Originally a rally against prominent Victorian-era design, the Craftsman style home was first popularized in the late 1800’s. Up until World War I, when the Craftsman movement slowed, Gustav Stickley was at the forefront of the style creating hand-crafted artistic bungalows for the working class. After World War II, world-renowned designer Frank Lloyd Wright evolved Stickley’s original designs into the popular ranch-style homes that dot nearly every neighborhood across the United States.
The Craftsman movement saw a resurgence in the 1990’s – one that continues today. Let’s experience this popular architectural style with five captivating Craftsman homes.
