The Eastlake Style is named for Charles Locke Eastlake, an Englishman who authored a book titled “Hints on Household Taste in Furniture, Upholstery, and Other Details.” This book was extremely important in American design, because it explained William Morris's ideas into terms that the average cabinetmaker and builder could understand.
Eastlake made use of geometric shapes made possible by modern machining techniques of his time. This made it possible to easily duplicate the patterns exactly. Although part of the Victorian Era, Eastlake always emphasized simpler designs rather than the excessive baroque decorations and motifs of the Victorian style. Later in life, Eastlake became appalled because others took his designs to the extreme with designs that were dizzying with too many intricate and excessive designs that took away from their original simplicity.
