Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Arts and Crafts - An aesthetic and social movement of the late 19th century that originated in England and spread to the United States, Germany, and Northern Europe. A reaction against industrialization and the quality of manufactured goods, the movement is marked by a desire to revive the craftsmanship associated with traditional arts, a form follows function philosophy, and an idealized view of the medieval craft guilds.
  • daybeds - Extended chairs, generally without arms, used for lounging with one backed end usually made to tilt; often supported on a stretcher frame with six or eight legs. Also, long, wide, sofalike seats, often with two low ends that somewhat resemble headboards or footboards, that can be used for sitting or sleeping. Daybeds are typically designed for one person to recline on and were historically sometimes used for the formal reception of visitors. They are generally placed against the wall or in a niche.
  • paint - Any dispersion of pigment in a liquid binder. Paint is applied with a brush, roller, sprayer, or by dipping and dries to form a decorative or protective film.
  • stenciling - Method of creating multiple copies of a design by cutting it out of a thin yet durable sheet, such as thin brass or plastic, and dabbing, pouncing, spraying, or rubbing a color substance through the openings. For printing from stencils, use "stencil printing."
