The Grove Park Inn opened in 1913, at the height of the American Arts & Crafts movement and was decorated with furniture from Roycroft, one of the major commercial producers of Arts & Crafts furniture. The Inn has retained many of the original pieces and has continued to acquire a large and rare collection of original Arts & Crafts furniture. The Grove Park Inn serves as an important link in the history of the Arts & Crafts movement and is a great location to view the furniture in place. This collection is the next best thing to visiting the Grove Park to see the furniture for yourself, showcasing this rare and beautiful furniture for the first time in any book. You'll also find never-before-published measured drawings for many of these pieces, making this a wonderful collection for history buffs and woodworkers alike.
