American Furniture 2019 (American Furniture Annual)
The Chipstone Foundation’s annual American Furniture and its sister publication Ceramics in America are the most influential publications to have emerged in the decorative arts field during the last twenty-five years. These journals continue to set new standards for cutting edge research, photography, and graphic design while forging links between academia, museums, craftspeople, and the collecting world.
Acknowledged as the journal of record in its ﬁeld, American Furniture presents new research on furniture design, use, production, and appreciation. Begun in 1993, this award-winning annual provides a comprehensive forum on furniture history, technology, connoisseurship, and conservation by the foremost scholars in the ﬁeld. It is the only interdisciplinary journal devoted exclusively to furniture made or used in the Americas from the seventeenth century to the present.
