Furnishing Louisiana: Creole and Acadian Furniture, 1735-1835
by Jack D. Holden, H. Parrott Bacot, and Cybèle T. Gontar
with Brian J. Costello and Francis J. Puig
edited by Jessica Dorman and Sarah R. Doerries

designed by Tana Coman

This magisterial study evokes an era before mass production and ease of transport began to homogenize furniture design across America. From the early 18th through the mid-19th centuries, distinctive cabinetmaking traditions developed in the Mississippi River valley through a melding of French, Anglo-American, Caribbean, Canadian, and African influences. Along with a catalogue of furniture forms produced in the region are essays on early cabinetmakers, the materials they employed, and the homes for which the furniture was made. Furnishing Louisiana stands as tribute to the region's cultural diversity and remarkable artistry.
