Mission and Craftsman style lighting is a product of the Arts and Crafts Movement, an international design movement that flourished between 1860 and 1910, particularly in the second half of that period, and continuing its influence until the 1930s. It was led by the artist and writer William Morris (1834–1896) during the 1860s, and was inspired by the writings of John Ruskin (1819–1900) and Augustus Pugin (1812–1852). Although the term "Arts & Crafts" was not coined until 1887, when it was first used by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson at a preliminary meeting of the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society.

The movement developed first and most fully in the British Isles, but spread across the British Empire and to the rest of Europe and North America. It was largely a reaction against the perceived impoverished state of the decorative arts at the time and the conditions in which they were produced. It stood for traditional craftsmanship using simple forms and often applied medieval, romantic or folk styles of decoration. It advocated economic and social reform and has been said to be essentially anti-industrial.

The evolution of Arts & Crafts style in lighting has produced Mission and Craftsman style lighting that is simplistic, straight forward and typified with a high level of craftsmanship and materials.

Today, Mission and Craftsman style lighting is used within a variety of residential applications from the Craftsman style home, Bungalow, and Prairie style home, and Greene & Greene style home, as well as with commercial buildings and municipal environments. Mission style lighting and Craftsman style lighting has a quality of timelessness and is typically available in a wide variety of finishes, glass or mica diffusers.
