Synopsis: The outport furniture of Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the most colourful and distinctive forms of regional furniture in North America. Based upon European country furniture, it was adapted to reflect social and economic realities, as well as the physical environment in which it was created. AS an expression of the regional culture of the province, it demonstrates to contemporary Newfoundlanders and Labradorians the skills of their forebears as natural innovators, clever designers, practiced recyclers, and masters of adaptation. This volume taps into a rich material history which offers practical messages for the present day.
Illustrates the furniture made in the small fishing villages of Newfoundland and Labrador.
