If the fireplace was the primary symbol of the Arts and Crafts interior, the dining room was of nearly equal weight as another familial gathering spot and place to celebrate the bounty of nature. The sideboard, intended to hold serving pieces, also emphasizes food—a reminder to diners of the agricultural labors idealized by the proponents of the Arts and Crafts movement. Slightly wider than the standard production model, this work exemplifies the Craftsman Workshops mature style, reflecting a careful composition of many of Stickley’s signature constructive elements.
