Mission style furniture derived its origins from a desire to create furniture and accessories that were pure in form and lacked a lot of ornamentation. The mission movement, which began in the early 1900s, was in response to the heavily gilded and carved Victorian styles. Unlike it predecessor, the mission statement stressed the importance of preserving the simplistic nature of hand crafted products. Expertly combining form and function, the mission style is one characterized by natural, unpainted woods and other earthy materials. It leaves no room for confusion between its styling and those characteristic of insignificant clutter. This style rose to popularity when architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright adopted the style and the simplistic way of thinking. For more than 70 years, Wright showed his countrymen new ways to build their homes and to see the world around them. This arts and crafts movement is beautifully embodied in Crosley's Mission Stack-O-Matic. Handsomely showcased in a solid wood and veneer cabinet, the Mission stays true to the simplistic nature of design with smooth straight lines and rich edges. Crosley has married subtle stylings with fancy technology.
The Mission features Crosleys very own Stack-O-Matic technology allowing you stack up to 6 records and drop them automatically for continuous play. Let the AM/FM analog radio and illuminated dial take you for a stroll down memory lane or just pop in your favorite CD in the front loading CD player for maximum listening enjoyment.
