Prairie settle:    $28,800.00
AUCTION HOUSE: CHRISTIE'S
MAKER: L&JG STICKLEY

In 1912, L. & J.G. Stickley unveiled the paneled “Prairie” settle (sofa) and the “Prairie” arm chair. The wide arms and back are flattened and elongated to accentuate the horizontality of the furniture. These pieces are often referenced to connect Stickley to architect Frank Lloyd Wright, but Peter Hansen was the designer responsible for L. & J.G. Stickley’s Prairie Style furniture. In 1907, he left Gustav Stickley’s furniture design team, moved to Fayetteville, and joined L. & J.G. Stickley, owned by Gustav’s brothers Leopold and John George. Hansen was trained in Germany, but was well educated in American Arts and Crafts architecture and furniture. The “Prairie” designs have much in common to Wright, but our company archives reveal no material connections between him and any of the Stickley designers. Since L. & J.G. Stickley already had a well earned reputation for quality construction, they carefully matched the wood grain in the panels and added some patented construction features to the furniture. Hansen took more care to design furniture for function and comfort because Stickley was manufacturing furniture for public sale rather than making custom pieces. The Stickley prairie style was less extreme than Wright’s, and much more user friendly. When Stickley began to re-issue Mission Oak furniture again in 1989, the Prairie settle (#89-220) and the arm chair (#89-416) were some of the first designs updated. They are inspired by the originals, but advanced for the modern home. The panels are now “bookmatched” from the same boards to reveal a consistent wood grain pattern, enhancing the beauty of the furniture.
