Life-Time Furniture. The Cloister Styles.

Philmont Turn of the Century Editions: 1981.

"This is a catalog of "Lifetime" furniture, which was manufactured by the Grand Rapids Bookcase and Chair Company of Hastings, Michigan. The "Cloister Styles" shown here were created by the company in 1911. This catalog shows the quintessential heavy, massive, masculine style of mission furniture that was so popular a century ago. Even though some of the forms are similar to designs of Gustav Stickley and L. & J.G. Stickley, there are a number of original designs that distinguish this company as one of the major actors in the American Arts and Crafts Movement."

Softcover. 6"x8.5", 109 pages, black & white illustrations. New.
