Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Connors, a West Indian decorative arts scholar, presents a comprehensive guide to the development of West Indian furniture and its makers during the colonial era. Detailing the historical and sociological influences at play, he shows how each island's furniture began by reflecting the styles of the various ruling countries (England, Holland, Spain, Denmark, or France) and later evolved into a uniquely Caribbean style as the islands' furniture makers, who were primarily African slaves, began to develop their skills and incorporate African decorative motifs into their designs. Use of the islands' hardwoods, such as mahogany, and the prevalence of items best suited to the climate, such as caned rockers, four-poster beds, and armoires, further defined the style. Numerous color photographs show the furniture in historic buildings. Contributing to the publisher's multivolume series on international style (e.g., Alexandra Bonfante-Warren's Moroccan Style), Kemp (Stylish Settings; Beachfront Homes) offers a mainly pictorial work, with some text explaining the decorative touches that make up a tropical Pacific island or Caribbean island look. Illustrated with numerous color photographs, the book gives a succinct overview of the decorative, architectural, and furniture styles of contemporary interiors in the Pacific and Caribbean islands. Kemp's book is recommended for large or regional libraries where this look might be popular (e.g., Hawaii, Florida, California), whereas Connors's book is highly recommended for academic, professional, and large interior design collections.

    Excellent Resource

    This book is an excellent resource for professional and amateur decorators. I love every photograph in the book, this style is my favorite. I would like for my house to look like all the pages in the book. It would be warm and welcoming. Buy the book!! It's fabulous. Mr. Conners is brilliant.

    Hope to see more books by Dr. Connors

    The photos are exquisite and the book is an education and extremely informative. A short review cannot do justice. One gains an insight regarding that period of time and I hope to see more books by Dr. Connors. I am a collector of coffee-table books and this one definately goes on top!

    Caribbean Elegance - more than just another gorgeous coffee-table book

    More than a gorgeous coffee-table book, Caribbean Elegance redefines the genre. In addition to featuring interiors that are elegantly sybaritic and exteriors laden with tropical seduction, this book delivers an equal measure of substance to style. It's a fascinating read about our history, a place in time, and the influences of culture that informed a very sumptuous style of interiors, architecture and life.

    A Unique and Fascinating Trip

    Caribbean Elegance is a learning experience created by Michael Connors and Bruce Buck on styles and types of furniture that, while dating back in time, are new to most of us, and Bruce Buck's photographs make it a fascinating lesson. Especially intriguing are the spectacular finds in Cuba. This one is sure to enhance any coffee table collection.

    Beautiful Elegant and Beautiful

    Michael Connors holds the essence of Carribean Furniture in his hands. The book is filled with lucious photograps and well written descriptions of the subject. Dr. Connors is to be commended for enlightening us to this little known aspect of design excellence.
