Mobilier de métal

de l’Ancien Régime à la Restauration


Iron, steel and sheet metal furniture ? These structures’ lines are so stylized that they could be mixed up with present-day design creations. Though they form the metal furniture from XVIIIth to early XIXth centuries. The used materials and the meticulous study of gestures for a perfect functionality reveal an inventiveness that this book offers to discover. Through many examples (four-posted bed before the upholsterer’s intervention, peinted or varnished sheets metals evoking lacquer, folded or unfolded countryside furniture, mechanics furniture…) Alain Renner shows us a new aspect of this admirable furniture.
