Publisher's Description:

Primitive, rustic, one-of-a-kind furnishings are wildly popular with a wide range of homeowners and professional decorators. Passion for Primitives, with more than 200 lush and stunning photographs, depicts the unpretentious honesty of pieces that come from the imaginations and hearts of the untrained artisans who created them. These furnishings, accent pieces, rustic architectural and structural elements, and displays of country collectibles and folk art are iconic Americana. This book unveils a legacy that is not only intrinsic to our historic design tradition, but is newly flourishing throughout the country. Passion for Primitives is a photographic tour of private homes throughout the U.S., ranging from country simple to modern. It is also a guide to designing with primitives that gives readers an invaluable tool for understanding the range of possibilities in decorating-an ideal book for decorators, designers, architects, and homeowners.
