Less known today than Gustav Stickley, Charles Limbert produced some of the finest designs in the Arts & Crafts style, combining a European sensibility with the rectilinear forms of Mission furniture to create unique designs. The use of negative space, curves, and canted sides establish Limbert as one of the most distinctive voices of this popular style. These timeless pieces complement any style.
Building Classic Arts & Crafts Furniture collects almost 200 measured drawings of Limbert’s best designs. A bill of materials and explanatory note for each piece and a chapter on wood selection, hardware sources, and construction and finishing techniques provide the woodworker with all the information needed to reproduce these designs. A historical overview places Limbert’s life and work in the larger context of the era and details the materials and techniques used to produce the original furniture. A bibliography guides further reading on the topic, including historical sources and previously published plans.
