An impressive array of furniture, most never seen in print before, comprise this new study of American cabinetmakers and their furniture from the Victorian through the Modern eras. More than 500 photographs illustrate design elements that make this furniture distinctive and attractive to a wide audience today. From Rennaissance Revival to Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Modern forms, the furniture shown here has had an impact on the history of interior design worldwide.
Furniture historians and dealers Richard and Eileen Dubrow of New York are the authors also of American Furniture of the 19th Century, 1840-1880 (1983) and of Furniture Made in America 1875-1905 (1982 & 1994). In this new book they have compiled personal research and broadened the scope of their earlier investigations to encompass the entire evolution of furniture designs through a full century.
