Other

Limbert was an American Arts and Crafts furniture designer, working in the early 20th century. His designs are European influenced, partly from the large Dutch population of the Grand Rapids area where he started, and partly from his studies of European designers such as Charles Rennie MacKintosh. Like MacKintosh, an important element in his designs is space, through the use of cut outs and open frames. His fern stand exemplifies this use of space to define the shape and character of a piece. The feminine curves also show the influence of the earlier Jugendstil or German Art Nouveau movement.
