Integrating antique furniture and art into a modern home may seem like the making of a décor disaster, but Swedish interior designer and antiques dealer Karin Laserow shows how easily it can be done in this beautifully illustrated guide. The book highlights the traditions of Swedish furnishings, explains the basics of antique furniture, and illuminates the histories and the distinctions of baroque, rococo, Gustavian, and Empire styles. It also explains how to tell the difference between old and new pieces, how to evaluate antiques, and how to determine whether repairing, repainting, and refinishing are worthwhile choices.
