Homes of the Arts & Crafts period ranged from the highly artistic Craftsman designs of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie style and the Greene Brothers' California bungalows to the working man's kit homes. The Movement influenced the architecture and lifestyle of American home owners from 1900 to 1925 and its effects are readily seen today in our contemporary architecture.
