An annual publication forging a link between social history, American studies, and the decorative arts. Acknowledged as the journal of record in its field, American Furniture (distributed for the Chipstone Foundation) presents new research on furniture design, use, production, and appreciation. Begun in 1993, this award-winning annual provides a comprehensive forum on furniture history, technology, connoisseurship, and conservation by the foremost scholars in the field. It is the only interdisciplinary journal devoted exclusively to furniture made or used in the Americas from the 17th century to the present.

This volume includes articles on mannerist furniture from a Northern Essex County, Massachusetts shop, the career and work of David Evans, early New York turned chairs, the Lisle desk-and-bookcase from Rhode Island, a Salem cabinetmakers’ price book, two early eighteenth-century Schränke, as well as book reviews and bibliography.

Forthcoming issues of Chipstone's American Furniture and Ceramics in America annuals are also available at reduced prices by subscription.
