Abstract:

"This book presents a collection of superb work from thirty-six eminent British professional designer-makers, and highlights the best of hand-built individual furniture commissioned by corporate and private clients from around the world." "Over four hundred full-color photographs illustrate this display of quality and uncompromising craftsmanship from designers who represent the standard that sets them apart from the blandness that overwhelms so much of today's furniture design." "Here then is a visual feast of art and craft of the highest order - work that represents future design for years to come. It is an important and essential reference for interior designers, furniture historians, and students of design, and a book for all those who simply appreciate the craftsmanship, dedication, and pure skill of some of our finest contemporary furniture makers."--BOOK JACKET.
