Grand Rapids Furniture - Hardcover
With contributions from three scholars, Carron (head of the curatorial department of The Public Museum of Grand Rapids) chronicles the city that once crowned itself "The Paris of Furniture Design." Coverage begins in the 1830s with the first cabinetmakers, and continues to the high-tech office furniture of the late 20th century. A detailed directory of manufacturers lists more than 800 West Michigan furniture makers past and present including company names, locations, designers, and product descriptions. In addition, hints for identifying Grand Rapids furniture complement some 400 maker's marks and labels.
