Swedish Design: The Best in Swedish Design Today
Susanne Helgeson
ISBN: 1840006412


The author presents a survey of over 30 Swedish designers, from glass and textile designers to ceramic artists and furniture makers, which provides an insight into Scandanavian design philosophies. The work of 14 Swedish photographers illustrates the text, capturing the artists, their work and a number of key producers and contributors. An illustrated history surveys Swedish design from 1845 to the early 21st century, while a glossary and directory provide further information on this growing industry. This text should be of interest to those studying design, and the Swedish design scene in particular.

History of Art
H.W. Janson
ISBN: 0131056824


For forty years, this widely acclaimed classic has remained unsurpassed as an introduction to art in the Western world, boasting the matchless credibility of the Janson name. This newest update features a more contemporary, more colorful design and vast array of extraordinarily produced illustrations that have become the Janson hallmark. A narrative voice makes this book a truly enjoyable read, and carefully reviewed and revised updates to this edition offer the utmost clarity in contributions based on recent scholarship. Extensive captions for the book’s incredible art program offer profound insight through the eyes of twentieth-century art historians speaking about specific pieces of art featured throughout. Significantly changed in this edition is the chapter on "The Late Renaissance," in which Janson offers a new perspective on the subject, tracing in detail the religious art tied to the Catholic Reform movement, whose early history is little known to many readers of art history. Janson has also rearranged early Renaissance art according to genres instead of time sequence, and he has followed the reinterpretation of Etruscan art begun in recent years by German and English art historians. With a truly humanist approach, this book gives written and visual meaning to the captivating story of what artists have tried to express—and why—for more than 30,000 years.

Antigues at glance furniture:


Antiques at a Glance: Furniture presents a fine selection of some of the most exquisite pieces of furniture to have passed through Christie's, the world-famous auction house. Part of a series, this book presents a wide range of antiques that are as beautiful as they are valuable. Whether you are an avid collector with an eye for a good investment, or new to the world of antiques, this book is sure to inform and inspire.
From beautiful chaise langue to amazingly crafted wooden desks, by way of ornate side cabinets, elegant armchairs, and stylish sofas, a fabulous array of furniture from centuries past and from every corner of the globe are presented.
If you have ever wondered what defines an antique, then the general introduction and varied selection of examples that follow will provide an answer. Greater flexibility in defining what might be regarded as an antique came not a moment too soon, as the supply of fine-quality pieces produced before 1830 (the former criteria for defining an antique) had all but dried up by the 1960s. Now an antique can range from an exquisitely designed Mackintosh oak chair to Art Nouveau suites made in 1910.
Collectors are often puzzled by the vast differences in prices between two objects that are superficially similar. In some cases there may be as many as a dozen criteria governing the value of an object. These could range from the age, materials used, the type of construction, quality of craftsmanship, artistic or esthetic considerations, unusual technical or decorative features, and such factors as makers' marks, full hallmarks, dates, and inscriptions. The introduction also provides tips on the positive and negative factors that will help any aspiring collector.

Over 120 beautiful color images are accompanied by an informative text which illustrates the varied selection of desirable objects that have passed from one collector to another. At a glance information is provided on each page, giving the date, origin, and brief description of each item with more detailed captions that chart the development of furniture over a period of 400 years. Fascinating antiques are shown from all over the world, from 17th-century armchairs to wine coolers from the George II period.

About the Author
James Mackay, formerly collectables columnist for the Financial Times, has written extensively on all aspects of the applied and decorative arts over the past 40 years. He has contributed numerous articles to magazines on both sides of the Atlantic as well as many books from general works on antiques to studies of specific subjects, such as animalier bronzes and glass paperweights.

Brilliant colour at home:


brilliant colour at home is a celebration of bright color in decoration. There is a place for brilliant color in every interior. Use it all over to create exotic or sumptuous interiors, or add splashes and blocks of brilliance here and there to create warmth and focus in a room decorated in neutrals.
An early section of the book explains the color wheel and how to use it to your advantage. Another cuts through the jargon and myths to explain how color affects spatial awareness.
Stunning photography of real homes -traditional and modern - delights in both vibrantly grand gestures and, for the more reserved, reveals the power of perfectly stated small spots of color (flowers, cushions, table settings, glassware, painted canvases, projected images...).

brilliant colour at home shows you how to choose colors that are direct and exciting; how to include them in your decorative scheme; how to use them to help bring awkward rooms or corners to life, and how to use paint, fabric, pattern and light to enliven your home.
