Charles P. Limbert (1854 - 1923) took his design influences from many European sources; a turn-of-the-century catalogue starts:
"We issue this booklet to illustrate some of the most beautiful and effective pieces of furniture designed and constructed after the type made famous by William Morris, which is now much cultivated by European artists........in America it is known as Arts and Crafts."
But it was the Dutch population around Grand Rapids that gave him his real inspiration. Restraint and construction became decoration, leading to an avoidance of carved and turned enrichment:
"...the more skillful the craftsman becomes in the exercise of his own particular branch of craft, the less he is disposed to cover, or have covered, the surfaces of his productions with carving or other ornamentation.....and a most delightful tale it is."
