Swiss Furniture and Interiors in the 20th Century
Swiss Furniture and Interiors in the 20th Century
For the first time, the development of interiors and furniture in Switzerland from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day have been surveyed and documented. Following introductory essays by Lucius Burckhardt and Stanislaus von Moos, both experts in design research, there are seven main chapters each focusing on a period of 15 years; these are complemented by detailed information on those masterpieces which can be considered to define the epoch. Some 20 representative interiors reveal the significant changes which have taken place in living space in the 20th century. A fully illustrated catalogue of over 300 objects from furniture to ceramics and household objects and around 150 biographies conclude the publication.
Much of the information was previously inaccessible and contains invaluable details regarding the origins and the production of the objects. This book is a fascinating compendium of the great classics in Swiss design, with rare early works and countless new pieces. A large part of the furniture has been photographed especially for this publication and the model furnished interiors have been drawn to the same scale. This indispensable standard work has been edited by Professor Arthur Ruegg and been produced in collaboration with the Design Collection of the Zurich Museum for Design, the Society for Swiss History of Art in Berne and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.

Albert Furniture & Appliance Center. This is one of those old-style places, and I got to hand it to them. I don’t know how they stay in business with all the "big box" places nearby.

Dangerous Liaisons: Fashion and Furniture in the Eighteenth Century (Metropolitan Museum of Art)
During the reigns of Louis XV (1723-74) and Louis XVI (1774-92), fashion and furniture were not simply meant to be beautiful but were also intended to arouse, attract, and seduce. Published in response to the critically acclaimed and hugely popular exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum in the fall of 2004, Dangerous Liaisons focuses on fashion and its interplay with the paintings, furniture, and decorative arts of eighteenth-century France. Featuring beautiful color photographs of the exhibition’s installation, details of the garments, and supplementary historical material, the book demonstrates how the extravagant clothing of the period reiterated the splendor of Rococo and Neoclassical interiors.
