Furniture

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 insight into almost every period, from the prehistoric to the postmodern. Throughout, the author has kept in focus the preoccupations, as well as the organization and techniques of furniture-making, have affected the forms of these objects, which are so vital a part of our environment.
