World Furniture – An Illustrated History from Earliest Times gives a comprehensive introduction to the history of furniture design and interiors. The book has been edited by Helena Hayward and it consists of more than 40 specialised articles by expert art historians.
The articles discuss furniture design and interior decoration chronologically starting from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and ending in mid-century modern of the 20th century.

Our copy of World Furniture in stock is the 1st paperback edition of the original 1965 Hamlyn publication; the print year is 1981. The book is in nice condition: the covers show some shelf wear and there is some yellowing on the edges of the pages, but the binding is all right.
