The book by Judith Miller. Who is famous for her Miller's Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide, has written a reference masterpiece. Its a 560 page heavyweight tome. that covers from 4000BC to post-modern/contemporary furniture.It highlights not only the history of the different periods, principle designers, movements and schools, it breaks the furniture down simply into the different motifs, features, colours and shapes used. While also graphically illustrating not only the furniture but the nomenclature associated with its parts.

Lavishly illustrated, it works as both a coffee table book and a educational reference book. I highly recommend it along side her book on "Chairs". My only wish after reading it was that it was twice the detail and half the weight.

typical A1 DK layout and delicious design complemented by a wealth of information that neither patronises nor overwhelms. More, much more than a 'coffee table' book. A feast to drop into from time to time and educate your mind and your eyes.

Excellent. Bought this as a present for a friend and she loved it. Lots more pictures than anything else i have seen which i find more helpful than text when understanding features. What text there was was very informative.

This is truly comprehensive - if you can"t find an example here, it's not been made! Superb illustrations and well recommended for anyone interested in social history.

Lots of pictures and design details to help understand each style period. Great summaries as well. A fantastic book if you are studying Interior Design like I am or if you have an interest in interiors and history.
