The newly released 500 Cabinets showcases the craftsmanship and skill of today’s leading master and up-and-coming furniture makers. Juried by John Grew Sheridan, this photography book brings together an outstanding collection of innovative cabinets and casework from buffets to jewelry chests.
To celebrate the release of 500 Cabinets, we’re doing a special giveaway of a bundle of three recent books in the 500 Series, all of which have received sterling reviews and receptions: 500 Cabinets; 500 Tables, juried by Andrew Glasgow; and 500 Chairs, juried by Craig Nutt.
The Christian Science Monitor calls 500 Tables “a feast of ingenuity, grace, and sometimes straight-up wit … (that) offers lessons in exquisite craftsmanship. You’ll be glued to your seat admiring the ingenuity of modern furniture makers.”
“These 500 pieces are an amazing representation of the creativity and originality of the world’s most innovative builders,” writes Barb Siddiqui of WoodCentral.com about 500 Chairs, and AmericanStyle magazine concurs, “This visually packed tome [is] the perfect eye candy for any furniture aficionado.”
These three inspiring books form a handsome set that will complement any home library (and be perfect for the coffee table!) and also make a wonderful gift. To be entered for a chance to win the bundle, leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Sunday, September 12.
Any post will do, but we’d love to hear about your favorite piece of furniture in your lifetime, past or present. (A past or present piece of furniture in this lifetime, that is, not a piece of furniture from a previous lifetime, although that also would be interesting.) Is it heavily or rarely used, functional or more of an art object? Was it the chair a parent always came home to and relaxed in? Something a great-grandparent made? What do (or did) you love about it, and what does it represent to you?
One winner will be selected at random and announced on Thursday, September 16. Click here for the official rules, sit back in your favorite easy chair for a spell, and good luck!
