DECORATING AMERICAN STYLE by Jose Wilson and Arthur Leaman.
Decorating American Style surveys the major design trends and fashions of the last three centuries, tracing their emergence from the European traditions brought over by the first settlers. These early craftsmen and artisans created distinctive and indigenous styles with a simplicity and functionalism attuned to the needs of the colonists. As America moved into a more settled era of trade, wealth, and expansion, these gave way to the more luxurious styles and elegant furnishings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
