Furniture is one of the last great, though under-sung investments. A good home is comprised of pieces amassed through years of experience, and accordingly, this takes a bit of care on the owner’s part. To help walk audiences through the daunting task of preserving your family’s namesake dresser – or any coveted furniture, for that matter – New York-based antique expert Christophe Pourny has created a new guidebook: The Furniture Bible. This 304-page volume contains pro-level techniques and tips on everything from varnishing to water gilding, guiding readers with step-by-step photographs. Ambitious users will also find delight in the challenge of recipes for waxes, finishes and stains provided by Pourny himself. Pick up this book now on Amazon.
