Greene and greene furniture book
Books,DVDs & Project Templates – Darrell Peart – FurnituremakerIn many cases their work is simply too beautiful to require the reading of text to explain it and looking at the pictures is eminently satisfying. The lifetime oeuvre of buildings and furniture by the highly gifted brothers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene is well documented in both the popular and academic architectural press. Their extant works are extensively catalogued, exemplary in their execution and quite simply gorgeous. Makinson and Edward R. The work inspires and enchants me, as a practicing architect not only for the beauty of its design, but the exceptional craft of its execution. Mathias further looks into unique elements of their work as they were applied to specific projects, the result a useful compendium for seeing and understanding just how exceptional the work is. Here the beautiful dark wood is contrasted with the lighter body of the drawer and secured to the top with brass pins.
