The Arts and Crafts movement began in Europe in the late 19th century as a response to the mass-produced and often shoddily-made products of the Industrial Revolution. The movement emphasized hand-crafted pieces made with natural materials, with an emphasis on craftsmanship and high-quality design. It was particularly influential in the decorative arts, architecture, and furniture design.

The peak of the Arts and Crafts period lasted approximately from 1880 to 1920. During this time, people were attracted to the idea of creating handmade objects of beauty, often rejecting the notion that the primary purpose of such items was to serve utilitarian functions. This time period was marked by the emergence of many innovative designs in the decorative arts, furniture, and architecture. Additionally, the Arts and Crafts movement established new ideas about craftsmanship, functionality, and aesthetics for an increasing number of industrialized nations.
