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.

 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Beautifully illustrated with previously unpublished photographs of materials and process, this book offers readers a distinct look at the home and lifestyle of one of the most acclaimed couples working in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.

Mid-Century Modern: Interiors, Furniture, Design Details (Conran Octopus Interiors) :

The 1950’s house was a scientific triumph, designed in a laboratory and tested on inhabitants of all ages before being built for the masses. Never had homes been so thoroughly contemporary, with antiques and period styles entirely banished. Mid-Century Modern explores the interior decor of this seminal decade, concentrating on all aspects of a home's decoration—walls, flooring, surfaces, lighting, and, of course, furniture. Case studies examine beautiful present-day homes that exhibit mid-century style in an exemplary way, and suggest ideas for taking the 1950’s look—complete with collector's pieces—and mixing and matching it with elements from other eras.

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.

 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.

 Art Deco Furniture: The French Designers
Art Deco Furniture: The French Designers :


"Lavishly illustrated … an invaluable book."―Antique Collector

The Art Deco movement, which swept through Europe and the United States in the early twentieth century, signaled the beginning of the modern age of design. This dazzling and distinctive style, with its emphasis on up-to-date individuality combined with good taste, fine materials, and exquisite workmanship, soon created new standards in furniture design, architecture, and the decorative arts. In furniture especially, the French predominated, from the virtuoso cabinet-making of Ruhlman to the brilliant originality of Gray and Legrain.

In Art Deco Furniture, Alastair Duncan introduces us to the work of eighty-five French architects, interior designers, and furniture makers. These pioneering designers replaced the heavy, stylized work of the past with furniture that was simpler in concept, geometric in form, and highlighted by dramatic lines and elegant curves. The color and monochrome photographs―almost all of them specially commissioned for this book―form a valuable portfolio of Art Deco furniture. This detailed study serves as both an essential reference book for collectors and a marvelous chronicle of one of the most exciting design movements in the history of the decorative arts. 312 illustrations, 68 in color

The Bassett Furniture Company was once the world's biggest wood furniture manufacturer. Run by the same powerful Virginia family for generations, it was also the center of life in Bassett, Virginia. But beginning in the 1980s, the first waves of Asian competition hit, and ultimately Bassett was forced to send its production overseas.

In FACTORY MAN, Beth Macy brings to life Bassett's deeply personal furniture and family story, along with a host of characters from an industry that was as cutthroat as it was colorful.

 Pictorial Dictionary of British 19th Century Furniture Design
Pictorial Dictionary of British 19th Century Furniture Design :
The nineteenth century produced dozens of independent designers, particularly towards the end of the period. As the furniture trade developed, so manufacturers and retailing split. Catalogues began to be used in retail shops as they are today. Competition between retailers and the use of the new design books resulted in a large number of designs, not only new ones but also a constant looking backwards to earlier centuries for inspiration. This change in the structure of the industry made full use of highly individual interpretations of Gothic, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Naturalistic styles, Egyptian, Old French, Louis XIV, Louis XV and Italian decorations, all applied to a wide variety of furniture. The complexity of the subject is best explained by a very large number of illustrations and this is the reason why some 6,000 appear within this book.
