For courses in History of Furniture, Interiors and Interior Design. Furniture in History 3000 B.C.-2000 A.D. takes a new approach to a very old subject. By focusing on the constant theme of innovation and change, it discusses the history of furniture in the West-from ancient times to present. Its excellent coverage of modern periods, designers, and styles gives the book a depth and breadth not found in competing texts. Redesigned in this edition, it includes hundreds of illustrations and new photos from a variety of sources-including the Cleveland Museum of Art. Each chapter includes chronologies, designer contributions and historical highlights that make it a comprehensive volume on the evolution of style.
