Library Journal Review

The log and stone camps and lodges in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, which gave city dwellers a place to escape, have become synonymous with rustic style. Carley examines the architecture and interiors of this turn-of-the-century style through history and photographs of buildings such as Sagamore lodge in the Adirondacks as well as contemporary dwellings that echo this rustic style throughout the United States. Kylloe, a dealer and collector of rustic furniture and decorative accessories, examines furnishings and provides a history of the style and its manufacturers and designers. Carley has photos of individual items of furniture, Kylloe focuses on showing the furniture in its rustic setting with captions showing history and provenance¬Ďconflicting approaches that complement each other.
