Romantic Irish Homes presents 15 of the finest examples of these traits, each one of them distinctive and yet sharing the same native spirit. From vast ancient castles through sturdy Georgian manors to small ...

It comes from 18th and 19th century China, the last days of the emperors, and expresses a sense of creative freedom, vigour, and visual elegance. Here are cabinets, tables, chairs, a...
