Synopsis: These chairs aren’t made just for sitting down! They’re pieces of art meant to delight the eyes, stretch the imagination, and occasionally tickle the fancy. From classic forms to groundbreaking creations from modern innovators, this newest entry in the 500 series presents a dazzling collection of contemporary chairs from today’s leading furniture makers. Internationally recognized furniture designer Craig Nutt has selected the breathtaking examples by such respected names as Sam Maloof (a walnut rocking chair), Garry Knox Bennett (two ladderback chairs), and Andrew Muggleton (his Balustrade Chaise”) and they’re breathtaking. Judy Kensley McKie contributes a cool Monkey Chair” in walnut and bronze, with arms shaped like these playful animals. And Gord Peteran’s wittily named Electric Chair” comes in tubular steel and features a lightbulb!

Review:

"As a maker of chairs and a fan of the form, I pick up most every book I find with the word 'chair' in the title. Lark’s new 500 Chairs is perhaps my favorite. Part of Lark Books’ beautifully presented 500 Series, 500 Chairs opens with a brief but thoughtful essay on chairs by Craig Nutt. Then it showcases chairs in a clean format: color photos, titles, dimensions, maker, and, for the most part, little commentary. Whether your tastes lean toward the traditional or contemporary, functional work or artistic interpretations, you’re likely to find inspiration in this book." - Editors Blog, FineWoodworking.com

"If you think you've seen all that can be done in designing chairs, think again. Lark Books' 500 Series steps into the furniture world with gallery photos of everything from the bizarre to the the purposely mundane in human seating ... A reader can skim the book for amusement, but you'd miss a lot if you didn't examine the photos closely. Selected by studio furniture maker and sculptor Craig Nutt, these 500 pieces are an amazing representation of the creativity and originality of the world's most innovative builders." - WoodCentral.com

"(What) sticks most in my mind after weeks of leafing through this winning picture book ... (is that) every page gives you something to consider. And each time you take a peek inside, you'll see things differently." - The National "If you are looking for ideas for a project, an excellent source is Lark Books' 500 Series. While this series covers many craft media, woodworkers will find the most inspiration from 500 Cabinets, 500 Tables, 500 Chairs, 400 Wood Boxes, and 500 Wood Bowls. Even if you are not looking for ideas, there is much in these books to appreciate and enjoy. You will probably do lots of nodding, plenty of eye widening, some jaw dropping, and, naturally, some wincing. Each book delivers a huge quantity of outstanding work." - Rob Porcaro, Heartwood: Inside the Woodshop

"This visually packed tome [is] the perfect eye candy for any furniture aficionado." - AmericanStyle
