This literature review research paper examines the history of the Mission Style (Arts and Crafts) furniture and style movement. The brief history of materials and style gives a feeling of how this movement evolved and grew into the Prairie home style, which includes home design. It explains how modern reaction to the computer age has adapted the Mission style furniture to include modern materials and mass production to enable more people the opportunity to enjoy the style, function, and feeling of the original-era furniture.

From the Paper:

"The start of the Mission Style furniture era started in San Francisco, California in 1894. This Mission Style movement started in the Mission Communities in California when the Missions were training people to be furniture craftspeople. Often the materials they used were what were available locally. These materials included timber, fine wood, finishes, blacksmith nails, castings and hardware. (Mission Furniture 1980). The furniture built in this Mission Style was and is a blend of form and function that blends the natural beauty and warmth of the materials used."
