Judith Miller – Antiques Expert on the Skirted Roundtable

 

 

Judith Miller is incredible – she has written over 100 books.  Yes, 100!  I buy her books on design and keep them for reference, they are filled with everything you need to know about any given subject.  Her latest, Chairs, is truly remarkable.  She went around the world to photograph the most important and iconic chairs known to mankind.   No small feat.

 

 

 

 

Sounds lofty?  Well, it is.  How she accomplishes what she does – I’ll never understand in this lifetime.   I’m the ying to her yang.  I don’t think she would have me for a friend – my laziness and general lack of ambition would bore and frustrate her to death!   And on top of it – she’s brilliant AND nice!  The pictures in Chairs are beautiful – and if you have a thing about where you sit down, you need to get it HERE

 

 

Miller's 20th Century Design

 

 

And, Miller didn’t just write one book this year, she wrote two (of course!)    The other one is Miller’s 20th Century Design –the encyclopedia of everything modern from our times, available HERE.   And trust me, these books aren’t small, or light, or brief.  They are masterpieces.

 

We were lucky to get Miller to sit down for a moment and talk to us about antiques, her books, chairs, you name it – she’s an expert on it.   So, grab a cup of hot chocolate, a throw, and go sit on your favorite chair by a hot roaring fire to listen to Judith Miller on The Skirted Roundtable, HERE.  You’ll learn something new and worthy, I promise you!
