Later, the success of his sturdy furniture allowed his son, Hollis Baker, to study at University, travel the Old World, and hone the eye of a collector. Today these two thoughts, the eye and the hand, remain the cornerstone of Baker Furniture. For Baker customers, they mean a sense of integrity and the promise of things chosen well rather than often.

Stickley's story began with three words: Als Ik Kan — "To the best of my ability." This old Flemish craftsman's phrase has been the guiding principle of Stickley since Day One. Gustav Stickley marked his product with the phrase to assure customers that Stickley furniture was of the finest quality, with every piece made with honor, integrity, and pride.
The Stickley brothers burst into international prominence in the early 20th century with their Mission Oak designs. These were based on the notion that furniture should be “honest” — a reaction against the fake joinery, unnecessary gaudiness, and shoddy workmanship of many of the pieces created in the early days of industrial furniture making.
The Stickley’s 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 long-lasting, and perfect for the new ways American families wanted to live.
Stickley furniture was not for shutting up in formal parlors. It was to be used and loved by young and old. Great emphasis was placed on letting the gorgeous, organic forms of quartersawn oak and other woods speak for themselves. Finishes were not thick gums, but clear dyes that allowed natural grain to sparkle.
Enduring tradition, superior craftsmanship and an unshakeable philosophy of excellence — these are the bedrock of the Stickley ethic, and the reason that Stickley produces America’s premium hardwood furniture.
The company says it in many ways, and in different tongues, but the spirit goes right back to that Flemish studio: Als Ik Kan.
