 The Furniture Bible: Everything You Need to Know to Identify, Restore & Care for Furniture
The Furniture Bible: Everything You Need to Know to Identify, Restore & Care for Furniture :


Christophe Pourny learned the art of furniture restoration in his father’s atelier in the South of France. In this, his first book, he teaches readers everything they need to know about the provenance and history of furniture, as well as how to restore, update, and care for their furniture―from antiques to midcentury pieces, family heirlooms or funky flea-market finds. The heart of the book is an overview of Pourny’s favorite techniques―ceruse, vernis anglais,and water gilding, among many others―with full-color step-by-step photographs to ensure that readers can easily replicate each refinishing technique at home. Pourny brings these techniques to life with a chapter devoted to real-world refinishing projects, from a veneered table to an ebonized desk, a gilt frame to a painted northern European hutch. Rounding out this comprehensive guide is care and maintenance information, including how to properly clean leather, polish hardware, fix a broken leg, and replace felt pads, as well as recipes to make your own wax, shellac, varnish, stain, and more.

Furniture You Can Build: Projects that Hone Your Skills series (Getting Started in Woodworking) :
The first volume in this series "Getting Started in Woodworking: Skill Building Projects that Teach the Basics" proved that a book specifically designed to address the needs of beginning woodworkers has broad appeal. The second and third books in the series focus on shop development, while this fourth book continues the use of projects as a means to learn and practice skills. Studies have shown that beginners need two things to continue their interest in woodworking: early success and increasing confidence. This book, like its predecessors is designed to do exactly that: give the reader projects they'll be proud to own and the means to accomplish them successfully. The projects range from a computer cart (to store a CPU) to small trestle table and a bed. All of them have been chosen for maximum impact and doability for a novice. Making the simple desk which might retail at $1600 for less than 1/8 of the cost provides strong incentive to attempt construction. And this book provides all the instruction, support, and tips to help any serious beginner achieve their goal.

 Making Authentic Craftsman Furniture: Instructions and Plans for 62 Projects (Dover Woodworking)
Making Authentic Craftsman Furniture: Instructions and Plans for 62 Projects (Dover Woodworking) :


Rejecting the "badly constructed, over-ornate, meaningless" furniture of the late Victorian period, architect, furniture designer and manufacturer Gustav Stickley developed a radical new design concept that stressed careful workmanship, simplicity, and utility. His important monthly magazine The Craftsman (1901–16) published construction plans for his distinctly American furniture.
The 62 simple, straightforward projects reprinted here — exquisite examples of Stickley's classic designs — first appeared in The Craftsman between 1903 and 1907. Included are projects large and small enough to satisfy the household needs and creative urges of any woodworker. Make authentic reproductions of handsome, functional, sturdy Craftsman home furnishings from bookcases to bedsteads, dressers to dining tables, a hall tree, a foot rest, a wood-box and more — future family heirlooms that will stand the test of time both in durability and in clean, elegant purity of line. Each project includes Stickley's original information for woodworkers of the early 1900s: a perspective drawing of the completed piece; a brief description of the item with suggestions for appropriate choices of wood; a "mill bill" giving complete lumber specifications; and schematic drawings showing both front and side views with accurate measurements.
All woodworkers, even beginners, will delight in this collection of genuine Stickley plans for 62 of the finest, most desirable pieces of Craftsman or "mission-style" furniture. Antique collectors, furniture restorers, and historians of American style also will appreciate the detailed information on an influential design movement enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

Chalk Painting Furniture Made Easy

The Complete Beginners Guide to Mastering Chalk Painting Furniture in No Time!

Painting with pigments mixed with a medium and chalk is not new. The technique, in a variety of ways, has been around since the days when humans were painting on the walls of caves. However, using paint made with chalk and acrylic paint is relatively new. It shortcuts a lot of the difficult parts of antiquing and renovating furniture by (usually) by-passing that messing process of stripping off layers of old paint and finishes. Here is a book that takes the mystery out of the painting with chalk and acrylic medium – and gives a bit of the history of how it developed, as well.

 Rick Owens: Furniture
Rick Owens: Furniture :
The first volume on the interiors and designs of one of the most influential designers today, providing unique insight into the creative lives of Rick Owens and his wife, Michele Lamy.
 
This book is conceived as an intimate look into the creative, personal, and often secretive lives of Rick Owens and his wife, muse, and collaborator, Michele Lamy. Known for his self-described “grunge meets glamour” style, Owens showed his first furniture collection in Paris in 2007. It was quickly received as a direct extension of his subversive aesthetic, with its bold mix of material, texture, and functionality, proving that his own artistic universe stretches far beyond the reaches of fashion into a lifestyle his acolytes could embrace.
 
Rick Owens: Interiors captures the place where Owens began designing furniture as a hobby, his iconic home and headquarters at the Palais Bourbon, a space populated with the furniture that Owens has been designing since 2006. Including antler chairs and petrified bark tables as well as workspaces and bedrooms, this volume provides a unique view of the lifestyle and body of interior design work of an artist who is constantly pushing the boundaries with his personal approach to craft.
 
Beautifully illustrated with previously unpublished photographs of materials and process, this book offers readers a distinct look at the home and lifestyle of one of the most acclaimed couples working in fashion today.

Furniture: Great Designs from Fine Woodworking :
Once woodworkers master basic techniques and have some experience building projects, they begin to look for inspiration. For over 30 years woodworkers have turned to Fine Woodworking magazine, not only for the wide variety of projects offered, but because the designs offer a level of refinement and sophistication not found in other magazine projects. A signature feature of Fine Woodworking project articles is detailed exploded drawings. Some of these plans are works of art in themselves and reward careful study with insights into the basis of good furniture design. For the many woodworkers who come from engineering and other technical disciplines, these plans are worth the price of the book alone.
This book collects the furniture and accessory articles that contain exploded drawings from the last 15 years of Fine Woodworking. It is organized by type of furniture (tables, beds, case pieces, etc.). The book contains approximately 60-65 projects. Because there is such a wide variety of styles, projects types, and skill levels, it should appeal to a wide range of woodworkers.

 Furniture
Furniture :
'Furniture' is a unique book that is difficult to categorize. Its allegiance is to Surrealism and Dadaism, saturated with the author’s interest in Eastern religion and philosophy. If it is a novel, then it wears the name very loosely. Equal parts creative nonfiction, fiction and poetry, it is a strange work that challenges reason and imagination, eschewing traditional form and structure. Meaning and language are deconstructed and explored, leaving it open to the reader’s interpretation. At times funny, grotesque, poignant and fantastical, 'Furniture' is very bizarre, full of word-play and startling imagery. Above all it makes for an interesting and puzzling reading experience. It is a radical book that should be shared with everyone, offering a fresh perspective and definition of the world. Enjoy!
