Prairie Chevrons


This Prairie style design is inspired by architectural themed stained-glass windows from this popular era of architecture.  The style emerged in Chicago around 1900.  A group of young architects combined the ideals of the Arts & Crafts Movement with its emphasis on nature, craftsmanship & simplicity with the architectural theories of Louis Sullivan, which included distinctly American architecture rooted in nature and included modern elements such as flat lines and stylized ornamentation.
