Traditional Japanese furniture

Open All Close All

  • "Japanese furniture has a rich heritage dating back to the seventh century. Masterful craftsmanship and aesthetic sensitivity evolved with this furniture's long history. As with much that is Japanese, these pieces find virtue in restraint, with an understated simplicity distilled from a thousand years of knowledge and careful craftsmanship. Though the West has long acknowledged the beauty and value of these objects, the history of their making--their milieu and craftsmanship--remain virtually unexplored. This volume, first published in 1986, fills that void. Author Kazuko Koizumi, a pioneer in the field, brings a thoroughness and warmth to the subject. A wealth of illustrated material puts the pieces in context. A historical account, laced with centuries-old drawings, traces the evolution of furniture design through the lens of Japan's "floor-based" culture. With over 650 photographs, this book documents and discusses the roots of more than eighty unique furniture types.--From publisher description."
