About this title


Book by Barker, Marilyn Conover


The Legacy Of Mormon Furniture is the first definitive work on Mormon furniture to demonstrate and document the creative range of individual Mormon craftsmen. The Legacy Of Mormon Furniture features unique pieces in photos and diary accounts spanning a thirty[year period over a century ago. Mormon cabinetmakers were rewarded for their resourcefulness and fresh interpretations of Empire and Scandinavian designs executed to the classic taste of their leader and prophet, Brigham Young. A trained cabinetmaker in his own right, Young commissioned furniture from simple in style to the most lavishly carved and faux-painted. Each elegant piece was exquisitely crafted from wood available in a stark wilderness or brought along as packing boxes and wagon parts. Master craftsmen from Europe also came as converts to assist him in the colonization of the Utah Territory to establish a refined society -- the unique Mormon desert empire called Desert. The Legacy Of Mormon Furniture is beautifully photographed by Scott Peterson and thoroughly documented through research with Utah and Mormon archival historians, museum curators, and family records by Marilyn Barker. The Legacy Of Mormon Furniture is a unique compendium and a wonderful tour-de-force of furniture-as-art as well as function. Highly recommended! -- Midwest Book Review
