Hickory Furniture features fascinating history, contemporary finds, and more than 100 photographs of unique hickory furniture. Ralph Kylloe, the leading author on rustic design and furnishings, explores the history of hickory through illustrated vintage catalogs, museum and private collections, plus exquisite photography. With the growing interest on regional rustic furnishings, rustic art, and the natural rustic lifestyle, Kylloe has captured the significance of rustic furniture as an art form and the contribution that rustic artists make to the American artisan community. Although factory-made, hickory furniture is great folk art. It has withstood the test of time-it is honest, beautiful, functional, and built to last for ages.
