The Adirondack Chair: A Celebration of a Summer Classic
picture
Features:-
There’s no competition. When it comes to the American Idyll, the hammock and the Adirondack chair are the shoe-in (and shoes-off!) winners. Built for lazing around in, they’re the classic icons of a summer getaway. And they’re both quintessentially American. The hammock, invented by the native inhabitants of the Caribbean, was “discovered” by Columbus on his first voyage to the New World. And the Adirondack chair—whose name evokes the mountain retreats for which it was originally fashioned—is deeply rooted in the American Arts & Crafts movement. In these charming books, furniture maker Daniel Mack captures the nostalgic, carefree, and oh-so-comfortable spirit of the hammock and ’Rondack chair. Illustrated with scores of contemporary photographs and images from vintage memorabilia, The Hammock and The Adirondack Chair are also filled with “who knew?” history. And each contains instructions for hanging your own hammock or building your own chair. But really, these books—splendid gifts for Father’s Day or as thank-you tokens for summer-weekend hosts—are not about work. In fact, they’re perfect for taking a little break with (while relaxing, of course, in a hammock or Adirondack chair).

Way More Than A Bed On Stilts: Build this 21st Century Loft Bed Yourself
picture
Features:-
Way More Than A Bed On Stilts is written for the person or family who is living in a crowded living space. It shows them more options to cope with their pressing needs, through creative and practical furnishings. If a strategy of life improvement includes basic needs, plus education, organization and discipline, we must accommodate those continually. Of course we need a bed, but we also need to store our clothes in a ready to wear condition. Yes, we need education, but we also need a place to study and an organized way to store and access our study materials. If we lack a clothes closet, or bureau, or a desk, organized storage, or the space for it, we handicap ourselves! Way More Than A Bed On Stilts can help people overcome these types of limitations. This book contains a 21st century loft bed design. When built and used as designed, it is safe; it exceeds all applicable safety standards. Please read those standards and evaluate for yourself. This loft bed design is very durable. It won't become shaky in a year or two. The frame should serve for many years. It can be disassembled and reassembled repeatedly to accommodate moving. This loft bed system is incredibly useful: it features multiple options for built in desks, shelving, drawers and containers. It accommodates clothes storage, books, files, supplies, games and lighting. The design is modular; the accessory options fit together in several combinations. On top of all this, more than one may fit in a room! This system is designed for most of the electronic accoutrements of modern life. This is the 21st century. Way More Than A Bed On Stilts is a do-it-yourself project. If you are at all handy, you can build this, while saving money. The sample configuration loft bed with a desk, bureau, and closet rod cost about the same as a comparable size bureau alone (excluding the mattress of course). This is do-able for many people. Just follow the instructions and choose wisely. You can do it!

Decorating with Architectural Trimwork: Planning, Designing, Installing
picture
Features:-
Decorating with Architectural Trimwork fills a void in the existing literature on trimwork. There are plenty of books that tell the reader how to install trim around windows and doors, but few that also explain how architectural trim can enhance a room's aesthetic appeal. Responding to the recent trend of building houses as empty boxes, author Jay Silber shows readers how to choose and use a wide variety of moldings, trim, and design concepts to transform a sterile, open floor plan into a warm, inviting, richly textured home. Trimwork shows readers how to decorate their homes with trim and wall panels so that their walls, passageways, and stairways can radiate the warmth, character, and beauty of the well-trimmed homes of eras gone by.

Features:-
The approach of the millennium has heralded a renaissance in urban living that has seen the widespread conversion of former schools, factories, hospitals, warehouses, and commercial spaces to provide stylish accommodation in our increasingly overcrowded cities.

With stunning photographs of some of the world's most innovative conversions-- including the work of leading international architects and designers-- Lofts is the ultimate sourcebook for stylish, urban living. Combining the aspirational with the practical, it provides design solutions on a vast scale, whether you choose to commission an architect or interior designer or take on the work yourself. With creative ideas and key information for everything from space-planning and maximizing design characteristics to decorative schemes, fabrics, and furniture, Lofts illustrates how to create the definitive living space that complements your lifestyle and combines aesthetics with comfort.
