Greene and Greene inspired Exposed Ebony Spline

In the early 1900 architects Charles and Henry Greene made a paradigm shift in both residential housing and furniture design.

While most of us are familiar with the Arts and Crafts Style of designers like Stickley, it is unlikely you will find an original Greene and Greene at your local consignment store because their furniture was made to order only once for a specific client.  Yet today, the impact of their design permeates in many ways.  The next time you are at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, or the Lodge at Torey Pines take a closer look at the design elements and know they were born in the USA.
