Synopsis: Surveys the history, style, and design of furniture from ancient times to the present, presented with more than six hundred photographs and drawings

From Library Journal: This outstanding publication could serve as a primer for the history and development of furniture. Organized by overlapping and common styles rather than chronologically, it explicates the use of various design features, motifs, and ornaments throughout history. The 12 broad sections, which focus on such categories as antiquity, classicism, neoclassicism, eclectic revivalism, functionalism, and non-Western styles, are subdivided into individual chapters. While the highly informative text is sometimes dense, the use of illustrations is excellent, tying in themes and examples from the other decorative arts as design supplements. The illustrations feature exquisite details in ornamentation and serve to highlight unusual features and materials. This book is invaluable to most reference collections focusing on the decorative arts. Highly recommended for all types of libraries.
