Every object tells a story...We all have treasures hidden away in the attic, well-loved and well-worn belongings that have been passed down from generation to generation. They may be damaged or no longer working, but we can't bear to part with them. The expert craftspeople of hit BBC series The Repair Shop are dedicated to restoring and conserving these heirlooms. They know that the true worth of these possessions doesn't lie in their monetary value, but in the memories they hold and the stories they tell.This remarkable new book takes you inside the workshop of dreams to discover some of the most moving stories from the series, including some previously unseen restorations. From a grandmother's music box lovingly restored so that it once again plays the tunes remembered from childhood, to the leather armchair saved from the Nazis and damaged in a bombing raid, these restorations offer a fascinating and emotional glimpse into the personal histories of people from across the UK.A much-needed antidote to today's throwaway culture, Stories from the Workshop of Dreams reveals the hidden life of our favourite things.

On a farmlike compound near New Hope, Pennsylvania, George Nakashima, his family, and fellow wood-workers create exquisite furniture from richly grained, rare timber. Tables, desks, chairs, and cabinets from this simple workshop grace the homes and mansions and executive boardrooms of people who prize such excellence. In this lavishly illustrated volume, George Nakashima allows us in intimate look at his artistry, his philosophy, his life. It is the portrait of an artisan who strives to find the ideal use for each plank in order to create an object of utility to man and, if nature smiles, an object of lasting beauty.
The author's search for the meaning of life took him as a young man to Paris, Tokyo, and Pondicherry, India. In India, he found the inner peace for which he had been searching and began to find ways to work with timber. He writes movingly about the grandeur of ancient trees and stunning figured woods and explains how he selects and prepares his materials. Above all, he impresses us with his devotion to discovering the inherent beauty of wood so that noble trees might have a second life as furniture. The Soul of a Tree looks at the world through the eyes of an artist and evokes the joy of living in harmony with nature.

In the late nineteenth century, general housework in the British home was so labour intensive that it required an army of servants to undertake it. Since then, the ways in which we look after our homes may have changed dramatically but the best and simplest of methods from that time still work for us today. From floor to ceiling, and leaving no awkward corner untouched, here are the tricks and techniques that generations once took for granted, distilled for modern use: how to get rid of water marks or heat rings on polished wood; the antibacterial qualities of simple vinegar; the damp cloth versus the dry duster; and using lemon juice to clear limescale. Combining fascinating 'below-stairs' social history with startling facts and useful tips, Lucy Lethbridge restores fast-disappearing skills to keep at bay dust, rust, mildew, stains and pests. Here, beautifully illustrated and entertainingly presented, are a bygone era's keys to a clean house.

On the heels of the recession, there's been a resurgence of interest in small houses (1500 square feet and less) and even smaller retreats (800 square feet and less). People appreciate that living smaller is easier on their bank balance, their time and the environment. Plus, small houses and retreats are fun. Magazines and newspapers (like the New York Times) are featuring these smaller wonders more and more frequently, and architects are displaying more of them on their websites. Now is the time to re-present fundamental small-house design strategies - complete with whole-house case studies for homeowners eager to simplify smartly. The opening chapter presents ten clearly defined strategies for creating a great small house (including borrowed view and daylight, multipurpose spaces, pockets for privacy and using quality materials where it counts), setting the stage for 25 small houses profiled in the second part of the book. The houses are organised by the nature of their location (beach, rural, village, urban) and include new construction and renovations/additions.

Vintage Home is both a practical collector' s guide - what to look out for - and a celebration of the period. It covers both serious and costly designer creations, which sell in major auction houses worldwide, and cheerful mass-produced kitsch, which you can pick up in car boot sales, charity shops, flea markets and yard sales. It looks at objects from around the world that were made for every taste and budget. Designers in the twentieth century were driven by the possibilities of mass-production and excited by the host of new materials. The period is also infused with the importance of women after the First World War and the emergence of a youth culture, and the new market for modern, fashionable goods from the 1950s onward. Where the older generation were used to ' make do and mend' , the young embraced wholeheartedly the disposable society. They replaced the old with something new and fashionable, a taste epitomised by colourful plastic furniture and paper dresses. The consequence is a fabulous array of every type of object for the collector.

House as a Mirror of Self presents an unprecedented examination of our relationship to where we live, interwoven with compelling personal stories of the search for a place for the soul. Marcus takes us on a reverie of the special places of childhood--the forts we made and secret hiding places we had--to growing up and expressing ourselves in the homes of adulthood. She explores how the self-image is reflected in our homes; power struggles in making a home together with a partner; territory, control, and privacy at home; self-image and location; disruptions in the boding with home; and beyond the "house as ego" to the call of the soul.
As our culture is swept up in home improvement to the extent of having an entire TV network devoted to it, this book is essential for understanding why the surroundings that we call home make us feel the way we do. With this information we can embark on home improvement that truly makes room for our soul.
