Format: Hardcover
This book is very good for someone with little or no experience of the history of furniture. It has very clear pictures and an informative, chronologically ordered narrative which is useful for someone like me, who wishes to satisfy a general interest

Excellent pictures, selection reflects the authors interest in the up-market ornate
From the first 2 of these centuries probably all we have access to survives in great houses
The utilitarian elements are the most exciting in the latter 2 centuries
A good book

Great book to find out more about furniture en de rest in het nederlands omdat dat makkelijker praat. Goed boek om meubelen te bekijken door verschillende periodes heen!
