Roycroft Furniture Photos

Roycroft of East Aurora, NY, was an American leader in the Arts and Crafts Movement. Started by Elbert Hubbard as a printshop (1893), he expanded (c1897) into other decorative Arts and Crafts furniture and objects. After Hubbard's inspirational publications brought fame (1899), visitors flocked to East Aurora, where Hubbard set up the Roycroft Inn (1905). When guests started asking to buy the furnishings, Hubbard expanded the furniture business. One marketing invention by Hubbard was to put the Roycroft trademark on the front of the furniture instead of hiding it, as other did. Hubbard also marked his furniture with model numbers to make it easier for guests to request custom pieces.
