Up until World War I, when the Craftsman movement slowed, Gustav Stickley was at the forefront of the style creating hand-crafted artistic bungalows for the working class. After World War II, world-renowned designer Frank Lloyd Wright evolved Stickley’s original designs into the popular ranch-style homes that dot nearly every neighborhood across the United States.
