An exhibition catalog featuring the furniture and architecture of Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Frank Gehry, Ulrich Franzen, Frank Lloyd Wright, and others. From the text- "Traditional categories of art have been twisted and stretched to include a variety of hybrid forms. Concurrently, the old distinction between 'fine art' and 'craft' has become seriously suspect. This breakdown of conventional categories and distinctions has made it possible for furniture to become acceptable as an art form."
