Essential Reference 27 Mar 2008
By Global Citizen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Whether you're a furniture designer, interior decorator, or just like to be "in the know" about putting together your own house, this book provides a visual encyclopedia of styles and design periods, and details all the elements that go into a piece from types of legs and feet to decoration like fluting or ormolu. Truly an essential resource!

From the inside panel:
As Furniture & Furnishings examines and illustrates all the major items and objects of modern furniture with more than 1400 text entries and 1000 key line illustrations. The text and illustrations complement each other, so that the reader can begin with either the object or the word.

All the main types of each object of furniture are featured, together with their methods of construction, their parts and their decoration, both formal and surface.

Even more information is provided by an illustrated timechart of furniture periods, brief biographies of 70 furniture designers, and descriptions of more than 100 furniture styles.
