In response to Request for info - Empire & Regency furnishings, written by Carolyn B on January 22, 1998 at 23:21:08
] Can anyone recommend any good reference books on Empire or Regency furnishings (either from the period or in the style of the period)??
This might be way out in left field but I thought perhaps this book can help you, though not in the way you ask (sorry):
"The Elements of Style, the Practical Encyclopedia of Interior Architectural Details from 1485 to the Present" by Stephen Calloway & Elizabeth Cromley. "an indispensible reference for homeowners, interior decorators, professional restorers, architects, and contractors."
It comprehensively goes over each period, one item at a time. It does not, however, go over furniture except those that are permamnet fixtures, such as stairs, lamps, windows, doors, walls, wallpaper, fireplaces, built-in bookcases, woodwork, metalwork, stoves, etc. If you are in this field of work it may be worth it to check it out of the library as it is simply wonderful. I bought the book for $65.00 from a bookstore (which is why I would suggest looking in the library first).
