“Since its inception, this ground-breaking journal has consistently provided a forum for dissemination of the best and most up-to-date research in the field of American furniture. The essays are insightful, probing, and illuminating. In short, American Furniture is essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in the topic.”—Ronald Hurst, Carlisle Humelsine Curator of Collections and Vice President of Collections and Museums, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation

American Furniture embraces the American experience from the seventeenth century to the present by using furniture to access the historical contexts of culture, society, and technology. Curators, collectors, and a growing number of historians rely on American Furniture for current interpretation. Few journals in the fields of art and antiques are anticipated with equal enthusiasm.”—Philip Zea, Executive Director of Historic Deerfield

“Thank you Chipstone Foundation for this issue which adds mightily to our collective understanding of Eighteenth Century Pennsylvania furniture-making and carving in particular.”—Antiques and Arts Weekly

“Even if you do not have the complete run of American Furniture, the 2014 edition is a necessary addition to any decorative arts library. The papers sum up a generation of study by some of the most revered scholars in the field.”Maine Antique Digest
