Renate Möller - Furniture from the Baroque to the Present Day


It is not surprising that antique furniture has always found so many lovers, as it is a happy combination of aesthetic cultural asset and practical use. And compared to new furniture, antiques are usually much more stable in value.

In selecting the objects, an attempt was made to present styles and types of furniture that are currently attracting particularly great interest among buyers: traditionally, this was the elaborately crafted furniture of the Baroque and Rococo periods. Today, this also includes the simple forms of Biedermeier, alongside furniture of Historicism and, above all, furniture of the 20th century.

The book at a glance:
-over 250 exemplarily selected colour illustrations with all furniture areas that play an important role on the art market today: Baroque, Rococo and Classicism, Empire and Biedermeier, Historicism and period furniture, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, design classics from Bauhaus to Postmodernism, English furniture and peasant furniture, plus some exemplary furnishings such as lamps and mirrors.
-compact and easy-to-read introduction to the subject
