Furniture is one of the most intimate products any of us will acquire. We furnish the places of our lives so our families will love returning home, so our friends will look forward to visiting.
None of us is aching to inherit our grandmother's car or television, but her china cabinet would be a prized possession. Great furniture creates, and carries, memories across time.
What makes one piece of furniture an heirloom while another remains ordinary?
Special design, painstaking craft and construction, a history. These lend permanence and meaning to what would otherwise be just an object.
Als Ik Kan—"to the best of my ability." This old Flemish craftsman's phrase has been the guiding principle of Stickley. Gustav Stickley marked his product with the phrase to assure customers that Stickley furniture was of the finest quality, every piece made with honor, integrity, and pride.
The Stickleys used solid construction, what-you-see-is-what-you-get joinery, and the highest quality woods. But even more, they showed a genius for design, creating hundreds of new forms that were at once beautiful to look upon, practical to use, exceedingly strong and timeless.
The same devotion to design, the best workmanship, and enduring value was applied to all Stickley designs. Leopold Stickley's colonial-inspired Cherry Valley Collection, introduced in the 1920s, honored the traditions of early American craftsmen, earning Leopold the title "Revered Dean of Cabinetmakers" in the process.
The Audi Family purchased the company from Leopold Stickley’s widow, and they love Stickley furniture as much as the Stickley Brothers did, and so the name Stickley lives on in the furniture that is made even better today than it was back then. Still Made In America, One At A Time.
