"An Illustrated Guide to Furniture History provides upper-level students and instructors with an alternative visual analytical approach to learning about furniture history from antiquity to post-modernism. Following an immersive teaching model, it presents a nine-step methodology to help strengthen students' visual literacy and quickly acquire subject area knowledge. Moving chronologically through key periods in furniture history and interior design, such as the Renaissance, the Arts & Crafts Movement and Modernism, it traverses from Europe to America to present a comprehensive foundational guide to the history of furniture design. Part I addresses furniture within the context of the built environment, with chapters exploring the historical perspective, construction principles, and the categorization of furniture. In Part II, the author visually depicts the structural organization of the methodological process, a three-category framework - History, Aesthetics and Visual Notes. The chapters in this part prepare the reader for the visual analysis that will occur in the final section of the book. The book is lavishly illustrated in full colour with over 300 images to reinforce visual learning and notation. A must-have reference and study guide for students in industrial and product design, interior design and architecture"--
