i blindingly the snow blows through the city, chilling
all humanity that is caught upon the streets, the home
supplied with Stickley 's Craftsman furniture is the
place where bliss and comfort are found. How easy
it is to picture the family drawn up by the fireside
and resting in those rest-giving Craftsman pieces.
Yes, the very breath of the forest is in Craftsman
furniture. Just as the hardy woodsman, who lays
his axe to the huge trees, stands as an example of
the most rugged of humans, so does the beautiful,
staunch and massive Craftsman represent the hardi
est and most durable of all furniture character. Craftsman is possessed of greater 'wearing
qualities than any other furniture and its modestly beautiful lines give it a certain appropriate
ness for the home that is represented by the highest character and the strongest minds. In
Craftsman there is an unyielding strength, that makes the chairs, settees, tables, and all, express
the very majesty of the giant oaks of the forest. When one buys Craftsman he gets ;furniture
that goes into the home to become a part thereof and to give service for years and years! '
