The American Arts and Crafts Movement, or "mission," gained popularity as a decorative style beginning in 1900, and by 1920 had gone out of style. Arts and Crafts, however, was more than simply a decorative style: it was also a philosophy, an ethos, a way of living, and significantly, an enormous business. Artists and manufacturers of objects in the Arts and Crafts style - furniture, ceramics, metal, lighting, textiles, jewelry - found like-minded creators in a few U.S. locations. Among the most significant centers of creativity for Arts and Crafts was New York State.
