Design changes have provided variations from fancy items with bamboo before 1920, to streamlined Deco-inspired forms of the 1940s, and practical, mass-produced styles in the 1960s and beyond. Today, each rattan style is recognized for its distinctive contribution to casual living spaces, indoors and out. In this book, over 400 color photographs of rattan furniture, period upholstery fabrics, and related art works are described in detail to present an inspiring variety of furnishings for every room in the house. Harvey Schwartz identifies the finest pieces and explains what to look for in the market place. Beautiful floral barkcloth cushion covers and tropical scenes in prints and paintings are shown combined with fantastic rattan furniture to provide the best look for casual living. Every wrapping and joint has been inspected by “The Rattan Man” Harvey Schwartz to guarantee you the finest product available for years to come for your home or office. We get our handed-down knowledge from Tropical Sun Rattan ( TSR ) which was started in 1934 in California. Look for all our Rattan on 1stdibs by TSR. Harvey Schwartz is the leading expert in vintage rattan and author of "Rattan Furniture: Tropical Comfort Throughout the House." Signed copies are available on request for $39.99 USD.
