The United States of America were the birth place for “American Craftsman Style” , it is also know as “American Arts and Crafts Movement”. “This was an American domestic architectural, interior design, landscape design, applied arts, and decorative arts style and lifestyle philosophy which began in the last years of the 19th century.”

The american arts were born side by side with the wide diversity of related European design movements. “The British movement was a way of reacting against the Industrial Revolution‘s depreciation of the individual worker and resulting degradation of human labor’s dignity.”
