For more than 120 years, Stickley has stood for unparalleled American craft. And our story began with three words: “Als Ik Kan”—to the best of my ability.
To showcase some of the variation within American Arts and Crafts style, we traveled west for inspiration from California Arts and Crafts homes and from the celebrated architects Greene & Greene. The sleek, fanciful designs of Pasadena Bungalow are crafted in solid wild cherry with blackwood accents.
Design comes full circle with Pasadena Bungalow. Greene & Greene were influenced by Craftsman style and the furniture of Gustav and Leopold Stickley. Later, our designers were inspired by their hand-carved details and use of African Blackwood splines and pegs for both decoration and structure.
A tsuba, the decorated hand guard on a samurai sword, inspired the cutouts on the sides of this recliner and gave it its name. Incised carving, cloud-lift motifs, and precise African Blackwood joint pins add elegance.
