Eastlake furniture style is named after Charles Locke Eastlake (1836-1906), a British architect & writer who wrote widely on all aspects of design. He is associated with the Art Furniture Movement, a term he coined, and shared similar concerns with William Morris & A. W. N. Pugin for reforms in the applied arts; a 19th century reaction against the new phenomenon of mass manufacture. Eastlake wrote an influential book, Hints on Household Taste (published in 1868) advocating the use of simple rectilinear forms with correspondingly modest decoration, consisting of low-relief carvings combined with inlaid, incised or pierced motifs. Eastlake prepared the way for American Arts and Crafts Movement designers, such as Gustav Stickley and Greene & Greene.
