Connors, M. 2002. Carribean elegance. New York: Harry Abrams. 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. Reading this book is like being invited to an elegant house party in the Caribbean. You then enter a world of magical realism, in which you sit in the veranda of an 18th century "Great House" with beautiful ocean views, and your pick of antique "planters' chairs," with cool drinks waiting on a "cupping table." You listen to tales of planters and merchants, of sugar cane fields and slaves turned artisans. The material culture of the Caribbean is presented here, seen through the lens of historical events, the experiences of the wealthy and those who served them. You learn wonderful details about the subtle differences of styles on the Spanish, Dutch, English, French and Danish islands. Connors has captured the island ambiance, and explains in an easily understandable manner some of the reasons the local art forms developed as they did in relationship to their surroundings. My observation: Much have been written and said about the Chinese and Spanish influences on the development of Philippine furniture styles. Much have also been said, written and discussed about the "ANTILLEAN" style in Philippine architecture. However, little to no literature exists documenting the influence of the Caribbean (both the Greater and the Lesser Antilles) on the development of Philippine furniture styles. A cursory glace through these books shows that the Antilles have had a great impact on Philippine furniture that has yet to be studied and documented!
Renditions Furniture & Accessories is owned and operated by Delco Wood Products Corporation. Established in July 1991, the company manufactures wooden furniture and accessories in its factory located in Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila, Philippines. The company's export background dates back to 1993 when it exported furniture components as well as complete carved high-end occasional furniture to U.S. manufacturers. The high quality specifications and standards of these manufacturers then became a standard for all the company's products. By operating its own kiln drier the company is able to control the first and most critical quality requirement, wood moisture content. Philippine Mahogany and Mahogany veneer which is specially produced for furniture application are the company's primary raw materials. These are then bleached or stained to attain the range of finishes shown here. The showroom which is located at Festival Supermall, Filinvest Corporate City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City was opened in 1998 to cater to the local market. The company also supplies some local furniture retailers and accepts custom made orders. Infinite Interiors is owned and operated by Mr. Celso Briones. They manufacture wrought iron and wooden furniture which can be found in their showroom and factory in MacArthur Highway, Mabiga, Mabalacat Pampanga.
