The Grove Park Inn opened in scenic Asheville, North Carolina in 1913, at the height of the American Arts & Crafts movement. The craftsmen at Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft Shops were chosen to produce the Arts & Crafts furniture and hand-hammered lighting for what was called "the finest resort hotel in the world." Today the Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa is home to the country's largest collection of Arts & Crafts furnishings.
In Grove Park Inn Arts & Crafts Furniture, read about the history of this unique resort, through good times and bad. Take a visual tour through the hotel and its furniture collection. When you're inspired, use the incredibly detailed drawings and photos to build ten of the most significant pieces in the collection for yourself.
