Stickley Walnut Grove Collection

“If you want a Golden Rule that fits everything, this is it: Have nothing in your house that you know not to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

William Morris, founder of the British Arts & Crafts Movement

An American Ideal

In America, the Arts & Crafts Movement was pioneered by Gustav Stickley and Elbert Hubbard. Stickley created his revolutionary Mission style in Manlius, New York. Elbert Hubbard established the Roycroft Community in East Aurora, New York.

“When a man’s home is born out of his heart and developed through his labor and perfected through his sense of beauty, it is the very cornerstone of life.”

Gustav Stickley

“One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.”

Elbert Hubbard

Re-inspired

Re-inspired. It is like falling in love again. Like waking up to a new day, with sense of excitement and energy for what you do.

He likes the country, she likes the city, he likes the saddle, she likes linen and lace. They both like a well-made bed, solid walnut, Scandinavian flair, and an Arts & Crafts twist – the Walnut Grove collection by Stickley, only at Traditions Home in Wichita and Traditions Furniture in Overland Park.

Walnut Grove – a new modern design with flowing lines and moments of sophisticated handwork that beautifully showcases the furniture-maker’s art. Arts & Crafts reinspired. Solid walnut, with contours that are carefully sculpted, and structural elements are set apart to incorporate air and create a floating lightness.

By Marissa Brown, part of the new American design. Stickley, of course.

Walnut Grove Round Great Room

Walnut Grove

From the 1895 founding of The Chalk and Chisel Club, America’s first Arts and Crafts society, in Minneapolis, until today, the Arts & Crafts movement has not only blossomed but flourished, a celebration of the beauty of design and materials, plus the quality of craftsmanship.

Today, the look is modern and contemporary. It is a reflection of the wood’s natural beauty, the designer who creates the look, and the artistry of the workman who makes the piece.

Walnut Grove Round Great Room

In Walnut Grove, Stickley’s head of design, Marissa Brown, showcases an inspired modern design with moments of sophisticated handwork for a unique look. Contours are carefully sculpted, and structural elements are set apart to incorporate air and create a natural lightness.

Each piece is made with solid American black walnut. Then a craftsman applies a transparent finish that reveals the grain in all its beauty and complexity. Natural variations, from differences in grain pattern to a deepening of color over time, mean that pieces will vary slightly in tone—a mark of authenticity in the very best solid wood furniture. Walnut Grove is a visually rich collection that seems to have traveled directly from the craftsman’s bench to your home.
