de très beaux modèles de meubles en bois précieux de la Caraïbe.
même si vous ne comprenez pas l'anglais, cela vous plaira, pour peu que vous aimiez le style colonial.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The real thing 29 mai 2002
Par Marc Mandon - Publié sur
Format: Relié
After having lived in the Caribbean islands for fifteen years I can say that this book really captures the easy yet refined feel of the fine local furniture, as well as the homes. I think most people think of beach shacks being down there, and don't realize how the local craftsman have perfected their art over the centuries. It's a pleasure to see once again the graceful native mahogany furniture, and the lovely homes open to the trade winds. Mr. Connors has captured the island ambiance, and explains in an easily understandable manner some of the reasons the local art forms developed as they did in relationship to their surroundings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extremely Helpful 10 juin 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Doing research for island living and furniture, for clients here in the Bay Area, I found this book extremely helpful. Mr. Connors kept me reading, wanting to understand more of that wonderful period. Mr. Buck's photos were exquisite. Through both of their works, the understanding I received regarding that period of time in the Caribbean was and will be very useful to me. Thank you both.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Magical Realism 19 novembre 2003
Par Ellen Gagen - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Reading this book is like being invited to an elegant house party in the Caribbean. You then enter a world of magical realism, in which you sit in the veranda of an 18th century "Great House" with beautiful ocean views, and your pick of antique "planters' chairs," with cool drinks waiting on a "cupping table." You listen to tales of planters and merchants, of sugar cane fields and slaves turned artisans. The material culture of the Caribbean is presented here, seen through the lens of historical events, the experiences of the wealthy and those who served them. You learn wonderful details about the subtle differences of styles on the Spanish, Dutch, English, French and Danish islands. The photographs are beautiful and range from vistas to architecture to furniture and their details. It is also a very scholarly work, of interest to anyone who loves antiques, craftsmanship, history and the Caribbean.
This book is truly an experience you can come back to again and again, and discover something new (or old...).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Furniture is the Focus 25 janvier 2006
Par Tamii - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book has great pictures of West Indian furniture and its focus is only on the furniture. I was looking for some ideas on how to design using this style, but not much can be gotten directly on how to do this from this book. However, I did come away with a good sense of the various influences on the West Indian style.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A tantalizing lesson in Caribbean furniture and history 5 août 2002
Par Judith Whitehead - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Michael Connors and Bruce Buck have given me a fun and educational experience in their creative endeavor "Caribbean Elegance". I hope to see more of each individual island's gift to its historical history provided by their craftsman and furniture makers. Especially fascinating were their fabulous Cuban ventures, which makes me feel they only scratched the surface leaving lots to encounter in future. This one is an asset to any coffee table collection!
