Furniture Facts© is the perfect gift for the do-it-yourself decorator and homemaker. It's loaded with ideas for personalizing your home!

In light of new technology and the ability to have the Ultimate Reference Manual for Furniture at your fingertips, we are almost finished developing a Furniture Facts© App for the iPhone, and an e-book version. As Mr. Lawhon wanted to continue Mr. Seng's legacy of portability and quality, the e-book will take the place of the paperback version. The new hardcover edition will be a beautifully designed work of art. This coffee table book will have tabs, full color photographs, paint swatches from the different eras, and more. There will be a "handbook" spiral bound, lay flat, for company textbook/training purposes. Details on that coming in May.

 

If you would like to be notified when the hardcover, e-book, handbook, and app suite are available, please fill out the form below. This is not a newsletter, and we cannot reply to any inquiries via this form.

 

If you have a request or suggestion, please click the "contact" link at the footer of the page to let us know! We will email you once when each has a publish date, and again when they are available.

You can use the contact form at the footer to request the past editions. Case discounts on those are 5% and they are $32.95 per book (plus shipping and tax for OK shipping addresses).
