Korean Furniture: Elegance & Tradition
By Edward Reynolds

The traditional furniture of Korea represents one of the great woodworking and design heritages of Asia and the world. Particularly in the last quarter century, Korean chests and furniture pieces have been highly prized by antique collectors and interior decorators everywhere. These objects' simplicity, vigour, strength, dignity, and, above all, their elegance allow them to harmonize with an amazing range of room styles and interior designs. The counterpoint of wood grain and metalwork make them objects that capture attention and delight the eye.

Though there has long been need for a clear guide to the intricacies of this marvellous furniture, this is the first systematic survey of Korean furniture in any language. The 152 plates depict a wide variety of objects of the highest quality, artless folk as well as flamboyant aristocratic pieces, and set a standard for appreciation and evaluation. The 106 figures illustrate the research of the authors into traditional Korean houses and life-styles as well as woods, joinery, metal fittings, and woodworker's tools. This pioneering book provides a grand overview of one of the world's great furniture traditions.
