Flowing from out of Rio Grande country is an artistic movement with its roots in both Native American and Spanish cultures--Rio Grande high style.
Furniture as ruggedly beautiful as the terrain that inspired it, mesas, cajas, trasteros, and other forms of furniture crafts are exqusitely illustrated in stunning color and black-and-white images, alongside profiles of the makers themselves.
Never before has anyone attempted to define the distinctive directions of furniture making in Rio Grande country--Taos Country, Native American, Rio Grande Cowboy and Ranch, New Spanish, and Rio Grande Mission. Elmo Baca not only defines these directions, he captures the vitality, the charm, the very essence of this movement--a design tour de force.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
The landscape of Rio Grande Country has inspired artists and designers for centuries, beginning with prehistoric Native American cultures. The natural splendor of the land and its great river continues to be an integral part of Rio Grande high style, as described by Mike Godwin, owner of Ernest Thompson Furniture of Albuquerque. "New Mexico is so visual; there's a lot of interesting colors and textures all around. I'll get ideas for new pieces just driving around and looking at the landscape."
