Description


Despite a rich woodworking tradition, Korea’s traditional furniture remains relatively unknown, especially in the West. Taking their cues from nature, Joseon-era carpenters built furniture that was functional, beautiful in its simplicity and purity of lines, ingenious in its use of wood joints, and perfectly suited to the Korean home and the local environment. Korean Antique Furniture & Accessories introduces the various types of furniture and accessories commonly seen during the Joseon era (1392–1897) and provides the associated historical, social, and cultural background to help see how Korean furniture came to be. Also presented are the tools, wood, and techniques often used by traditional woodworkers. Rich in illustrations and color photographs, this book will help the reader better understand Korean furniture and better appreciate its role and place within Korean culture.
