Reviews for The Furniture of Sam Maloof

A pure visual a study of one of this nation's great furniture'll want to share it with your woodworking friends. -- Jim Harrold - Wood Magazine An authoritative study... as good a point of any book ever written on the subject of modern furniture. -- Chipstone Foundation, American Furniture Peppered with interesting revelations that arise from close examination of the Maloof oeuvre...academic rigor balanced with a writing style that is well crafted with the integration of contextual material...a source of much new information on Maloof and an opportunity to see his work in the wider context of the changing American crafts scene -- Clive Edwards, University of Loughborough - Journal of Design History
