While all but gone today, Jamestown's furniture industry was once the second-largest producer of furniture in the United States. Manufacturing boomed from 1816, when William Breed and Royal Keyes opened their shops, to the 1920s, when Jamestown was still one of the top wood furniture producers in the country. In the nineteenth century, the thriving railroad industry allowed Jamestown's quality creations to be distributed nationwide. After the Civil War, an influx of Swedish immigrants brought their craftsmanship and skills to Jamestown, forming Morgan Manufacturing, Empire Furniture Company and many others. Then, their pieces were valued for quality and durability; today, they're coveted by collectors as beautiful antiques. Local expert Clarence Carlson uncovers the fascinating story of Jamestown furniture.

Although how we furnished our homes in the latter part of the 20th century was largely influenced by two men - Terence Conran of Habitat and Ingvar Kamprad of IKEA - a number of women attempted, in their various ways, to influence our taste when it came to how we lived. Early on were the Victorian/Edwardian women, often associated with the Suffragette movement who both designed and sold furniture. These were followed, after WWI, by others also breaking social rank - the society hostesses - totally untrained but full of confidence, who having their own 'interiors' admired, saw a way of supplementing their incomes, by imposing their tastes on others. Meanwhile a few women were proselytising their concerns for well-crafted and designed products, through retail outlets from small financially precarious shops, to running part of the prestigious store, Heals. Wartime threw up an altogether more professional group - the 'doers' - those e,powered to 'do it themselves' . Additionally there were a handful of professional furniture designers and another small group looking to the design needs of the masses rather than the comfortably off. From Palaces to Pre-fabs sets out to restore the reputation of such women working in what was the largely male-dominated world of interior design.

Emily Henson explores the elements that come together to create this eclectic, colourful and contemporary look and draws inspiration from an array of real-life Bohemian Modern homes. The Bohemian Modern home is a place where creativity, individuality and a bold mix of colour and pattern meet in a modern environment. Whitewashed walls and polished concrete floors are brought to life by vibrant rugs and wall hangings; a cosy rattan chair suspended from the ceiling, and a jungle of house plants - clustered in pots, hanging from the ceiling or even growing on the walls. The style gives a nod to '70s chic, with its use of shagpile rugs, Swiss cheese plants, and macrame, but it stands firmly in the present day by boldly contrasting those elements with sleek modern art and polished concrete worksurfaces. Emily starts by taking a look at the different facets of the look: pattern and colour, textiles, handmade pieces, living with houseplants, and collections and display. She offers up styling tricks to use at home and timely ideas for recycling and reuse. Next, a series of case studies take a closer look at free-spirited and creative homes and the people who live in them. From a restored barn on the coast of Morocco to a former parking garage in the Netherlands that's been converted into a flexible family live/work space, Emily shows that any home can have Bohemian Modern style.

Treehouses have always been a symbol of imagination and adventure, but despite the traditional stereotype, treehouses are not just for children and children's stories. Well built and in the right spot, they can add real value to your home and lifestyle. Beloved for centuries as ramshackle palaces of backyard escape and fun, the modern-day treehouse has evolved from more traditional structures, in the process morphing and expanding its agenda to capture the heart and soul of a new breed of acolytes. Versatile and endlessly adapting, it gives us a unique opportunity for creative expression and an individualistic challenge. It enables us to build on `unbuildable' plots, create unusual business models and even use it as a form for art installations. Using high-end interiors, landscape and lifestyle photography and styling in the specially commissioned images (photographed in all seasons and weather conditions), the book includes 35 treehouses with different budgets and styles, from the rustic that seem to disappear into the foliage to the futuristic made out of contemporary materials. Embracing a world-wide approach, the seeds of inspiration in this book come from far and wide: from contemporary minimalist treehouses, recycled urban structures in backyards, bespoke Welsh hideaways and glass walls in the African wilderness to cabins perched on trees in the scented lavender fields of southern Italy. Creativity and vision definitely anchor each and every one of them firmly to the ground. The accompanying narrative for each of these projects will give information about the location, the owners and their inspiration as well as style notes. Word count: 25,000
