I just love pinterest! Among all those boards on antique furniture – sometimes there are real treasures. This time I found some good recommendations on books about furniture history. Books are shipped, but before this wonderful discovery I bought some really good books too.

Book number one is – William Godwin Furniture and Interior Decoration.  I made a washstand using one of his fine pieces as a reference. So I was happy to find this book – great illustrations and drawings.

Some pieces are not really my taste, some I’ve seen in the museums, but still great resource for inspiration.

Book number two – is American Furniture of the 19th century. I bought it mainly because of the Amazon recommendations, I also read that there were supposed to be some measured drawings. I didn’t find many of them by the way, but the Rococo furniture part is fab. Just in time when I need it for my commission.

It’s a great reference book, I didn’t some of the artisans, to be honest. What I like is that you can find anything in here – mirrors, gates, curtains, etc etc.
