Excellent Reference of Modern Furniture

This is the best compendium of pictures and details about the Modern Furniture movement!

one of the most authoritative guides to furniture and lighting designs of the 20th and 21st centurie

The third edition of Jerryll Habegger and Joseph H. Osman's SOURCEBOOK OF MODERN FURNITURE should be on the reference shelves of ANY serious interior design collection. Appearing in its third revised edition, SOURCEBOOK provides one of the most authoritative guides to furniture and lighting designs of the 20th and 21st centuries in print, pairing color photos with features of works by hundreds of notable designers. Photos arranged by type of furniture or fixture make it simple for quick look-ups, while lists of suppliers and indexes of designers and manufacturers provide invaluable cross-referencing.

When the best gets better!!!

As predicted, the 3rd edition is OFF THE HOOK!!! The 3rd edition, published in 2005, has close to 700 new entries. Nearly half of the photos are in color and the authors have included web site information for manufacturers. This latest edition is in the collection of prominent museums and academic institutions across the globe, especially universities which have significant design and architecture programs. This is certainly a must have edition for the intellectually astute connoisseur of furniture and design. BTW, many of the listed reviews are referring to the 2nd edition which is now 10 years old!!! Check to be sure which edition other reviewers are referring to before making a purchase wouldn't want to miss out!!

A must for anyone interested in classic furniture

This was this single most important thing that we had when we began decorating our house. An absolute must for the classics!

An Excellent Comprehensive Guide to Modern Furniture

Habegger and Osman offer up one of the most comprehensive guides to the furniture of the Modern Age. Close up photography accompanies most entries in this massive hardcover volume. A welcome addition to your library, this book has it all- Frank Lloyd Wright and his visionary lighting and Asian-influenced low horizontal lines; Charles and Ray Eames; George Nelson; and the masters of the Modern manifesto, Herman Miller and the soon to be classic Aeron chair. I have dozens of modern design books which I've collected over the years leading up to the recent ressurgence in popularity of retro-fifties design, and if I could keep just one this would be it.
