This vintage book contains a complete guide to English furniture, with information on the major fashions, evolution of techniques, popularity throughout history, and other related aspects. Highly accessible and full of interesting and useful information, this volume will be of considerable utility to those with an interest in antique furniture, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “The Historical Background of Design 1500-1700”, “The Historical Background of Design 1700-1934”, “Furniture Design under the Woodworkers 1500-1660”, “Furniture Design under Fashion 1660-1730”, “Furniture Design under the Architects”, etc. Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of furniture.

Good proportions are more important than mere age a truth that has been forgotten since the cult of antique furniture achieved its easy popularity. This book is concerned only with furniture of good proportion. Its illustrations have been chosen to provide examples of good design in the past and the present. Its first two chapters sketch the historical background of design from 1500 to 1934, and then, chapter by chapter, it describes the evolution of different furniture types, relating the changes that occur in design and decoration in each period to that basic source of inspiration in design architecture.
