In the current Winter/Spring 2006 issue of Style 1900, Editor-in-Chief, Marilyn Fish made some intriguing comments in her editorial. These remarks are relevant to those of us who appreciate and respect historic ideals about interior design, but are seeking ways to individually express those tried and true principles. You can find a sampling of her editorial below, but go pick a up copy at your local bookseller and read for yourself.
"One of the key principles of Arts and Crafts design is the unification of the home, from landscape and siting to furniture and lighting. For example, if you look at Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin complex, you'll see the architect's hand in everything. Gustav Stickley, the Greene brothers, Charles Mackintosh and others advocated the same brand of harmony. But we live in an era of self-confident individualism."
