Recommended by a fine furniture craftsman as THE book to have as an overview to recognizing furniture styles throughout history. My copy is definitely "used" but quite serviceable. This is an airplane flight over the history of furniture style, not a dissertation on furniture development. I would buy it again. Shame it is out of print.

A great view from ancent time to the present on furniture
Reviewed in the United States on July 22, 2020
When we look at the old classic furniture all the way to the present we laughing so bad on the so called contemporary furniture. The modern one is so ugly and uncomfortable. It is funny!

A professional Interior Designer of 22 years, I also teach Interior Design at the University level. I am proud to require this as our textbook for History of Furniture. The photography, the selected pieces, the detailed information --- on-target! Students actually enjoy learning historical styles, all-the-while picking-up a little World History along the way. (Warms a teacher''s heart!)

The book contains elegant photos of furniture only found in world famous museums. Judith Miller has given us an up-close and personal look at seldom seen antiques, as well as more current pieces. Even the dedicated student would have had to spend years visiting select museums for just a peek. The quality of the research, the pictures, even the quality of the paper tells the reader "something special is behind this cover".

All this AND, it''s a gorgeous Coffee Table Book; worthy of a Christmas gift to that hard-to-buy-for person on everyone''s list.

Very Eurocentric
Reviewed in the United States on February 8, 2021
While the book has great information and beautiful photos, it’s extremely Eurocentric; basically as though Africa and Asia didn''t exist. If you want a true global account, I’m not sure this is it.

The product is a lie, it is marketed as something it is not. Only buy it if you''re interested in modern European furniture only, because it is most emphatically NOT ''the definitive guide to 3000 years of furniture design''. Of its 560 pages, ONLY 12 are dedicated to world styles before the 17th century so to claim it ''showcases more than 3000 years of design'' is insulting. ''From classical to contemporary'' is also blatant false advertising, as it contains one spread on Egypt, one on China (with examples from the 15th century no less), and one spread shared by Greece and Rome... the remaining three spreads in the ''Ancient'' section are Medieval and Renaissance - cursory mention does not qualify as a ''glorious encyclopedia''. The other 558 pages cover 400 years, so ''from primitive pieces to elegant modernity'' is an entirely false description as well. Oh, and the furniture are almost exclusively European, so putting ''World Styles'' in the title is plain disgusting. I gave it two stars because it does have great images and sections on the modern parts, but it is a garbage item for what it''s advertised as. It should be called ''An Overview of European Furniture in the Modern Era'' - great if you want to see examples of what makes German Art Nouveau different from Austrian Art Nouveau, but utter rubbish if you''re looking for ''World Styles'' or ''a definitive guide to 3000 years of furniture'' or ''from classical to contemporary''.

The book by Judith Miller. Who is famous for her Miller''s Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide, has written a reference masterpiece. Its a 560 page heavyweight tome. that covers from 4000BC to post-modern/contemporary furniture.It highlights not only the history of the different periods, principle designers, movements and schools, it breaks the furniture down simply into the different motifs, features, colours and shapes used. While also graphically illustrating not only the furniture but the nomenclature associated with its parts. Lavishly illustrated, it works as both a coffee table book and a educational reference book. I highly recommend it along side her book on "Chairs". My only wish after reading it was that it was twice the detail and half the weight.
