The chair is the most ubiquitous design element in the domestic environment, and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one. In Chairs Judith Miller scrutinises more than 100 of her favourite chairs reflecting on their iconic status, designers, historical facts, overall style, design details and ergonomic properties. More than 100 chairs have been specially photographed on location and are featured in chronological date order, ranging from early antiques such as the 1680 Wainscot Chair and the 1740 Louis XV Chaise Longue, to modern day collectables such as Marc Newson's 1988 'Embryo' and Tom Dixon's 2007 'Wingback'. This is not a catalogue; each chair has earned its place as an emblem of style, status, craft and art and is celebrated in this beautifully designed book.

This is a sumptuous coffee-table tome that truly celebrates its subject. For the chair obsessive, this gorgeous book will provide many a happy hour spent contemplating, admiring and coveting its contents --House & Garden
There are two reasons why this book on chair design stands out. The first is the photography by Nick Pope...much care has been given to shoot each of the 100-plus chairs. The other is the text Miller is given enough room to place each of the chairs within a historical context and assess them in way that is thoughtful without being academic --Daily Telegraph
