Furniture: A Concise History (World of Art)

by

Furniture: A Concise History (World of Art) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this illuminating history, text and illustrations combine to offer a view of furniture not as a succession of collectors' pieces, but as a statement about the society that created it. Edward Lucie-Smith offers insights into almost every period, from the prehistoric to the postmodern--from Neolithic tables to 1960s conversation pits, and from the ceremonial chairs of Egypt in the thirteenth century BC to the designs of John Makepeace.

Synopsis:

"Rich in information ... sharp in perception."--

About the Author

Edward Lucie-Smith is the author of several books, among them Sexuality in Western Art, Symbolist Art, Latin American Art of the Twentieth Century, and The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Art Terms, all published in the World of Art series.
