Review:


"A handsome and very useful book." — Robert A.M. Stern, AIA




"This book is both a wonderful read and an invaluable reference tool. It gives us an appreciation for how little the basic forms of furniture have changed over thousands of years and how constant the human desire to decorate." — Christine Fiorelli, Editor, Living with Antiques, New England Antiques Journal




"The illustrations, color photographs, and interesting text creates the perfect refresher course for the practicing interior designer or architect. No designer should be without this book in their library." Louis Postel, Editor and Publisher, Design Times Magazine




"Treena has been a regular and greatly anticipated guest on both of my national radio shows broadcasting across Canada. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of furniture design and decor is unsurpassed. The book is a 'must have' reference for anyone who considers themselves a student of design. I wouldn't be without one!" — Cheryll Gillespie, National Home Expert, Designer and Broadcaster
