Mission Style design grew out of the early “mission” settlements in California, founded by Spanish Franciscan priests in the 18th and 19th century. As in the closely related Arts & Crafts style, simplicity, functionality and sturdiness are hallmarks of Mission Style furniture and accessories. Stickley, Roycroft and others are well known for their contributions to Mission Style.
The influence of Hispanic elements can be seen in Mission Style decorating. Warmth, textures and colors had great appeal to the Arts & Crafts movement of the early 20th century. Hand-hammered copper, with its beautifully textured surfaces and rich colors, makes an excellent complement to Mission decor.
