Charles and Henry Greene designed some of the most distinctive American homes and furniture in the early twentieth century. Their work was rich with details.
The book covers some of the more common of those details.
Included are leg-indent details, ebony plugs, wooden hardware, cloud lifts, Blacker brackets, finger-proud joinery in drawers and more. Dozens of photographs accompany the text, with diagrams for clarity. Several original pieces of Greene & Greene furniture are shown throughout.
Also included is a brief history and background of Greene and Greene.
