Synopses & Reviews
Profusely illustrated volume by 19th-century pioneer of professional art criticism offers valuable information on how to furnish a home tastefully and affordably. Charming, lucidly written text covers everything from firescreens, curtained archways, and Grandmother's cupboard to Tyrolian tables and chairs, a Dutch bedstead, and a French bureau with fine brass mounts.
Lucid, charmingly written text — profusely illustrated — leads would-be decorators through the rooms of a late-19th-century home in a delightful quest for the right "look."
