Every now and then, a piece of furniture becomes a piece of history. Stickley has been in the business of creating historically significant furniture for over 100 years.
The Stickley 2022 collector piece, the Meadowflower Cabinet, is particularly poignant. This piece holds the timeless beauty and craftsmanship that we expect from Stickley, but there are also deeper meanings to its design. Let’s take a look at 3 reasons this limited-time piece is so special.
1. Functional and Versatile
From a practical standpoint, this cabinet is an excellent addition to virtually any space. The Meadowflower Cabinet includes an adjustable shelf tucked away behind its doors. There is also a raised top that doubles its surface area, so there is plenty of room for books, décor, or anything else you need a place for. While this piece has its roots in mission style furniture, its elegant features and multiple finish options allow it to compliment many design styles.
2. Meaningful Symbolism
The focal point of this collector piece is undoubtably the beautiful wood inlay of flowers on each of the cabinet doors. But there is a deeper significance to the design that makes this piece special. Stickley explains: “the practice of assigning meaning to flowers and plants […] was popular in Victorian England when the Arts and Crafts movement was dawning […]. The Meadowflower Cabinet’s stylized arrangement of cornflower and mint expresses ‘comfort in difficult times,’ while the 22 points on the flowers symbolize the year.”
A theme of comfort amidst adversity is both historically significant and relatable to all people, and we believe the meaning behind this cabinet will make it a poignant antique for future generations.
3. Craftsmanship That Lasts for Generations
You might be wondering how we could make such a bold claim that the Meadowflower Cabinet will be a valued antique for future generations. Our confidence stems from Stickley’s impeccable craftsmanship spanning over 100 years. Stickley’s furniture has already proven to be timeless and historically significant. Constructed from solid wood here in the USA, this cabinet can truly be passed down from generation to generation.
