Good + Reference Book for French Art Deco Period Furniture. Well written and with a considerable amount of illustrations / photos (unfortunately most of the photos are black and white).
Alastair Duncan is an excellent specialist in Art Deco and if you can afford the more recent «Art Deco Complete» you should go for that. Art Deco Complete: The Definitive Guide to the Decorative Arts of the 1920s and 1930s
If not, this book is very good but it would benefit with more colour photos.

This 192 page book gives a pictorial survey of French Art Deco Furniture, in the period 1910-1935. The extensive photography is a mixture of [mostly] contemporaneous B&W photos of furniture in situ, some extracts from catalogues, together with some excellent new colour pictures of individual pieces and details. The text gives (in a variety of detail, some entries of a couple of paragraphs, other several pages) an alphabetical biographical directory of designers active in that period. Given that art deco is best appreciated and understood within the broad sweep and interplay of architecture, setting, materials etc, this is an excellent book to understand the lineage of French ideas through Art Nouveau to Art Deco and beyond.
