The design style of mission bedroom furniture originated from the furniture style of the late 19th century. These furniture designs were copied from the furniture that Spanish missions had during their colonizing of California. Although the modern mission furniture has little resemblance to the original mission furniture during that period, the term was coined and used so often that it stuck to this particular style of creating furniture.

The main unique thing about mission furniture is that their designs emphasize simple lines, horizontal and vertical. It uses flat panels which in effect helps bring out the natural grain of the wood used. For the most part, oak wood is the number one material used for mission style furniture.
