Furniture is far too often taken for granted, despite the fact that we are surrounded by it daily. However, designers and artists throughout the world have been inspired by its history, beauty, and creativity. This third edition of a classic encyclopedia offers a detailed examination of artistic and cultural trends of the past and present by looking at how furniture affected the time in which it was made. The book is updated through to the twentieth century and includes an introduction, bibliography, and index in addition to black-and-white illustrations. Two appendixes also provide tips on shopping for the best bargains, determining fakes and reproductions, and handling professional dealers, as well as a comprehensive list of public collections of fine furniture in the United States. In a comprehensive listing of entries from "Aalto, Hugo Alvar Henrik" to "Zui Weng Yi," Boyce illuminates readers about furniture styles, construction details, terminology, furniture designers, and design movements throughout history and throughout the world. Styles covered include European-inspired classical, baroque, pop, rococo, and modernist. This extensive guide will be helpful for furniture enthusiasts, historians, and those interested in redecorating their homes.
