Designer's Guide to Furniture Styles
Designer's Guide to Furniture Styles

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Crochet has done her homework., November 9, 2000
If you are passionate about the origins of furniture and design, this is the resource for you. Pricey, yes, but I don't think it was meant for the casual home decor reader. It is more suited to the "die-hard" lover of furnishings, design history, and serious learners.
I love it. It seems to fill a void; and promises to be the "definitive" book on the subject of furniture through the ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a keeper., November 9, 2000
As long as we are going to drag "stuff" home, we might as well learn to at least catalog, organize, and store it safety, and with style.
This is what you call a "perennial"--a book that you can bring out at any time, year after year, and still find it useful. Ordesky must have an "acquiring" mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" no nonsense title., November 9, 2000
Mr. Lewin has the right idea: inform the public about how to make better choices, and you have a reader who will pass on the word.
While this book does not possess the "glitz" of most of the books of decorating ilk, this slim, informative volume is reasonably priced, and completely accessible to readers who love furniture, no matter how furniture savvy or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars I admit to being sucked into this book by its cover., November 9, 2000
This review is from: Formal Country (Hardcover)
This book is a remake (a tenth anniversary) of an earlier publication of the same name. Being that I don't care for cutsey wooden plaques, and the red, white, and blue of the "original" American Country look made famous so many years ago, I was hoping for the best with Formal Country.
It just did not live up to the terminology "formal" for my tastes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, inspiration to those of us who lead cluttered lives!, November 9, 2000
I like the fact that this book is a "look-see" into the lives of people who have organized collections and taste. It gives us something to strive for. Do we really want to see how to make tissue boxes into storage containers? Do we really want to see how middle America keeps its tchatchkes? I think not! Let's choose books for inspiration, let's look at ordered, practical considerations and try to apply them to our own "real life" settings.


Christopher Lowell's Seven Layers of Design: Fearless, Fabulous Decorating
Christopher Lowell's Seven Layers of Design: Fearless, Fabulous Decorating

3.0 out of 5 stars "Love that!", November 9, 2000
This book is the result of workshops taught by Lowell and his disciplines in a dreamy area of Ohio, Chagrin Falls. Crafty Lowell captured the decorating essence of some 3,000 graduates of his classes, preserving the student's talents and successes and putting that energy into a medium for disbursal, documentary footage. And, thus, the enterprise Christopher Lowell™ was born, and christened through the hit television program of the same name on the Discovery Channel.
This book is about selective stylings based on seven basic design decor layers. The photography is good, Christopher's personality shines through in the copy, but again, it is narrow in project choice and relies on basic information. I was impressed with the kitchen revamp.
