9780415884792: Furnishing the Eighteenth Century: What Furniture Can Tell Us about the European and American Past

Furnishing the Eighteenth Century provides an illuminating, interdisciplinary look into European and American furniture during the century that connoisseurs and collectors consider its golden age. Lavishly illustrated, this lively collection of essays by historians, art historians, and literary scholars examines the ways furniture of this period reflects the global contacts and social rituals developed in eighteenth-century Europe and America.   Drawing on literature, painting, account books and death inventories, this diverse compilation explores how and why eighteenth-century men and women on both sides of the Atlantic purchased and used furniture. Ultimately, these essays make the past come alive, showing us what made desks, tables and chairs deeply meaningful in their own time and historically informative today.

Review:

"The twelve essays that constitute this collection provide ample new, thoughtful, and frequently surprising revelations about what eighteenth-century furniture said to a broad range of makers, users, and audiences."Enfilade, newsletter for Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture

"There have been few attempts to make the history of furniture above all a form of cultural and social history ... all of these essays add to our stock of knowledge about furniture's importance." H-France review

"This book contains meticulous archival scholarship in abundance, attention to detail in a series of wonderful close observations, but most of all, in individual essays and as a project as a whole, a wonderful panorama of the imaginative routes taken by recent scholarship on the decorative arts. At many points I was both inspired by the imaginative range and humbled by the work rate of cultural historians of the decorative, enough to shame us complacent historians of the two-dimensional image. The answer to the skeptic’s question, 'Can the settee speak?' is, on the basis of the work presented in this volume, a resounding yes."Mark Ledbury, Eighteenth-Century Life

"The book would make a really interesting addition to any design-related library, especially for a reader who appreciates in-depth essays." – Style Court blog: www.stylecourt.blogspot.com
