Product Description
A glorious celebration of the singular sophistication of English furniture, this lavishly illustrated volume features more than 150 objects from the world-class collection of Hyde Park Antiques—one of the most prestigious purveyors of objects from England's history—showcased among charming illustrations of period interiors, exquisite drawings from cabinet-makers' albums, and contemporary interiors from the world's luminary decorators, including Mario Buatta, Albert Hadley, Bunny Williams, Charlotte Moss, and Cullman & Kravis, among many others. Five major styles from the periods between 1700 and 1830 are showcased in depth—from Queen Anne to Georgian, spanning Paladianism, English Rococo, Neoclassicsim, and Regency—along with the important designers of the age such as Thomas Chippenddale, Robert Adam, and George Hepplewhite. Recommended for both the serious collector and more casual admirer of traditional English style and design, this volume is destined to be a classic and is a must-have addition for every antiques aficionado's library.
