Adam Style (Paperback)Steven Parissien (author)
- Publisher out of stock
In the mid-Georgian era, between 1750 and 1785, a delightful form of domestic Neo-Classicism arose that came to be named after the outstanding architect of the period, Robert Adam.
This fascinating book takes the reader through typical houses of the time in England and America, showing the way in which they were designed, decorated and furnished. It is packed with meticulous visual details and stunning colour images that conjure up a period, and a style, that has never lost its appeal.
