About this title
Available for the first time as a small form at paperback, this highly authoritative book provides inform ation on the classical forms of furniture that have determin ed what constitutes good design over the centuries. 'From Library Journal:
Classicism continues to be a dominant principle in Western design, and nowhere has the sense of beauty, harmony, and proportion been more evident than in the design of furniture. Linley traces classicism from its origins in ancient Greece to other parts of the world, including interesting historical facts and insight into lifestyles. A student of fine crafting and a furniture designer and maker--as well as Princess Margaret's son--Linley is well qualified for the discussions of materials and methods used. Of particular interest is his directory of furniture, which illustrates the evolution of styles in chairs, tables, settees, sideboards, desks, dressers, and firescreens. Included are excellent black-and-white line sketches and rich color photographs. While not necessary for a limited collection, this will be of interest to art and architectural students.
