Chairs

Author: Judith Miller

Judith Miller celebrates and scrutinizes nearly 400 years of great seating in this sumptuous volume, an ode to the ingenuity of design, craftsmanship and sheer wow factor of the chair. Ranging from early antiques such as the 1680 Wainscot Chair and the 1740 Louis XV Chaise Lounge, to modern day collectibles such as Marc Newson's 1988 Embryo and Tom Dixon's 2007 Wingback, here are over 100 breathtaking chairs, all photographed on location. This lavish celebration of Chairs offers design aficionados and furniture lovers both authoritative text and 400 stunning photographs .In this beautifully designed volume, the chair really is the hero. Judith Miller began collecting antiques in the 1960s while a student at Edinburgh University. Fascinated by the inexpensive plates she bought in the city's junk shops she began to research their history in books and auction catalogues. She has since become one of the world's leading experts in antiques. From 1979 until 1988, Judith served as the co-founder of the international best-seller Miller's Antiques Price Guide and has since written more than 80 books, many of which are held in high regard by collectors and dealers.
