"Lavishly illustrated ... an invaluable book."―Antique CollectorThe Art Deco movement, which swept through Europe and the United States in the early twentieth century, signaled the beginning of the modern age of design. This dazzling and distinctive style, with its emphasis on up-to-date individuality combined with good taste, fine materials, and exquisite workmanship, soon created new standards in furniture design, architecture, and the decorative arts. In furniture especially, the French predominated, from the virtuoso cabinet-making of Ruhlman to the brilliant originality of Gray and Legrain.
