Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann was one of the most prolific Art Deco designers of the 20th century. Rarely seen desks, bureaus, sideboards, and tables designed by the Art Deco master are superbly reproduced in this first book about his life and work. One of the greatest French cabinetmakers and decorators, Ruhlmann used rare woods for the framework of his priceless pieces and ornamented them with ivory, tortoiseshell, lacquer, mirrors, silk, and tooled metals. He also applied his impeccable taste to lamps, wall coverings, rugs, beds, divans, and cigar boxes. This essential volume encompasses examples from all areas of Ruhlmann’s output, reproduces many sketches, and includes a brief biography and bibliography.

Description: Hard bound with dust jacket. 312 pages. Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann was one of the best and most prolific Art Deco interior designers and cabinetmakers of the 20th century. This book presents his work and life in detail, profusely illustrated with color and b/w photos. A very nice copy, bright and clean.
