For more than 120 years, Stickley has stood for unparalleled American craft. And our story began with three words: “Als Ik Kan”—to the best of my ability.
In the few months he spent working with Gustav Stickley, the architect, artist, and designer Harvey Ellis made his mark on Stickley furniture and American Arts and Crafts. See why his lighter, more decorative style has made our Harvey Ellis Collection a perennial best seller!
Harvey Ellis inlay patterns—including elongated floral abstracts, sailing ships, and woodland scenes—add beautiful decorative detail. Our modern interpretations are composed primarily of colorful woods like cherry, makore, English sycamore, magnolia, and bird’s-eye maple, with occasional copper rings and accents.
A Lighter Touch
Harvey Ellis modified and lightened Stickley’s heavier, more rectilinear pieces, adding features like overhanging tops, bowed sides, and rounded aprons that lifted pieces gracefully from the ground.
