Traditional American Rooms: Winterthur Style Sourcebook
Celebrating style, craftsmanship and historic woodwork, this Winterthur Style Sourcebook features the imitable style, elegance and character of historic American architecture in a guided tour of the Winterthur Museum and Country Estate. An essential read for architects, designers, homeowners and history enthusiasts.
Inside Traditional American Rooms, oversized photos introduce you to 33 beautiful rooms followed by a detailed presentation of the architectural elements that define the era and character of each space. To that end, every baseboard, chair rail, door-and-window trim, and ceiling cornice has been measured and drawn as a scaled molding section.
For the first time, Winterthur has been captured in gallery-quality photographs, technical drawings and architectural commentary allowing homeowners, interior designers, architects and builders to create authentic interpretations of classic American rooms.
