Arts & Crafts Bathroom Design

Arts & Crafts was an artistic and philosophical movement that began in the 19th century Britain. The subset of Arts & Crafts is Craftsman. According to Yahoo!, the Arts & Crafts philosophy spread across Europe and to America. In France, it became known as Art Nouveau and took on a sensuous style, reminiscent of plant shapes. In Scotland, it was called the Glasgow School, and its chief artist was Charles Rennie Mackintosh. In the U.S., furniture designer Gustav Stickley was an early and influential proponent of the movement.
