From time to time a series of books creates a cult following, like those of Carlos Castenada, and this book 500 Cabinets will certainly excite those of us fortunate enough to be selected to show off their best new work. Its a juried selection, thats to say that not everyone that submitted work got in. Now that I like. Its not vanity press publishing, but genuine effort has been made to select only the best examples by a jury of our peers. As the eagerly awaited follow-on to 500 Chairs and 500 Tables, this tome shows us the best of designer makers not only in the USA but further afield - UK, Finland, Israel, Holland, Australia and Ireland, making this book much more interesting to dedicated followers of fine furniture fashions. It is a marker of time, showing the state of the art of designing and making mainly wooden furntire as we see it today in 2010. Now there's a thing - one can repeat this book title in, say, 10 years time. What will we see then? It will stimulate debate, it will thrill interior designers, it will provoke arguments, and make our parents very proud indeed.
