The arts and crafts movement flourished in the 1850s as a challenge to industrialisation. The movement incorporated art, architecture, design and decorative arts — furniture.
Arts and crafts furniture is characterised by excellent workmanship, high-quality materials and clean, simple lines. This contrasted with the ‘cluttered’ style that was typical of Victorian-era decorative design. Arts and crafts furniture is characterised as rectilinear — that is, containing straight lines with an emphasis on the vertical.
Treske’s collection of arts and crafts-style furniture, handmade in Yorkshire, is true to the minimalist stylistic origins that defined the movement. Treske's oak furniture in the arts and crafts style began with a dresser, table and benches made for an exhibition of International Arts & Crafts at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Treske offer a complete collection of authentic, handmade arts and crafts style furniture. Whether an arts and crafts bed or an arts and crafts sofa, each is handmade and true to the historic style.
