Prairie Chair:    $45,000.00
AUCTION HOUSE: SOTHEBY'S
MAKER: L&JG STICKLEY

In the second decade of the 20th century, L. & J.G. Stickley began to supplant brother Gustav’s Craftsman Workshops as the premier designer of American Arts and Crafts Furniture. Bolstered by the revolutionary work of designer Peter Hansen, the Prairie-style furniture created by L. & J.G. Stickley was a breathtaking step from the rustic simplicity of early Mission furniture toward sleek, elemental Modernism. The model #416 Prairie Chair, produced from 1912 to 1918, is elementally a cube. Three frame-and-panel sides broken only by the seat. The elongated corbel brackets, an L. & J.G. Stickley hallmark, reinforce the wide arms and back, and balance the chair’s flatness with some verticality. The chair sits alone as a stunning visual art work, but is intended for use. The chair envelops the sitter with seat, back and side cushions. So though it conveys structural rigidity outwardly, it is built inwardly for comfort. The the arm chair (#89-416) has been a part of the Stickley Mission Reissue for twenty years. The panels are now “bookmatched” from the same boards to reveal a consistent wood grain pattern, enhancing the beauty of the furniture. Time has surged by, but nearly 100 years after its creation, the prairie chair continues to look…well, modern.
