American Furniture 2021


The 2020 volume of American Furniture is intensely object-focused, with articles ranging from new discoveries in Rhode Island furniture to those on specific pieces: two associated with Jefferson’s drafting of the Declaration and two with fraudulent components and additions. Underlying these essays are a diverse group of topics including “labor and memory in furniture history,” redemption and reimagination of furniture, and the exploitation of history and trauma in the creation and marketing of a fake.
