”This profusely illustrated volume covers 150 years of the design and manufacture of furniture in Chicago.”

CHICAGO FURNITURE ART, CRAFT, AND INDUSTRY, 1833-1983 by Sharon Darling, W.W. Norton & Co., NY, 1984 First Edition.

Pictured and described in depth “are pierces designed by such celebrated architects and designers as William LeBaron Jenney, Frank Lloyd Wright, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Gustav Stickley, and Wolfgang Hoffmann. Here also are detailed accounts of the firms that made the furniture, including the Tobey Furniture Company, S. Karpen & Brothers, and the Howell Company, as well as over 500 others. Promoted in expositions and catalogues, and distributed nationwide by wholesalers, retailers, mail-order firms, furniture made in Chicago both reflected and shaped popular taste across the country; modern or antique, it met the needs both of “the million” and of “the sifted few”.”

Given the profuse black-and-white photographs, and the extremely rich narrative, this early out-of-print book is an indispensable resource reference for the serious collector, dealer, or historian of early American furniture.

Heavy 8.75” x 10.25” hardback with dust cover in very good condition. 416 pages.
