About this title


This volume emphasizes the growing realization that furniture of great originality and interest has been made continually right up to the present day. Styles from the 1920s and 1930s are being rediscovered, rescued from junk shops and placed in pride of place in museums of decorative art. Many fine pieces are still to be found by the informed browser, and this book introduces readers to little-known but fascinating periods. It describes, for example, the influence of Victorian cabinetmakers and Art Deco designers alike, and wartime "utility" furniture and the Swedish and Italian styles of recent years are also covered.

About the Author:

HISTORY OF FURNITURE was complied by a team of 10 experts specialising in particular periods of interest.
