Star Pieces : The Enduring Beauty of Spectacular Furniture Hardback
This book is the first to take a subject that has previously been represented only in dry histories onto a new and spectacular level, in which furniture's `star pieces', whether made in the distant past or in the 21st century, are seen in an entirely fresh light.
Drawn from all periods, these exquisite objects - chairs, desks, sofas - are timeless in their arresting beauty.The book's rich and varied illustrations include details of carving, ornamentation and upholstery, views of different styles of furniture used in historic and contemporary interiors, original drawings, and spectacular pieces, both antique and contemporary.
