Description

Written at the turn of the century, this follow-up to The Furniture of Our Forefathers is largely considered the first history of English and French furniture that includes a practical how-to guide for designing rooms in period styles. The book begins at the end of the Renaissance and dedicates a chapter for each period after. Finely detailed illustrations of armoires, settees, chests and more accompany the in-depth histories of the people who created them. Esther Singleton invites the collector, craftsman and student to sit down with the past and enjoy.
