Louisiana Creole Furniture

There's an interesting article, with photos, about Louisiana Creole style furniture in the April Early American Life.  Great historical background, and I was glad to see that most of New Orleans' historic sites and collections remain intact (see editorial: Rebuilding Our Legacy).  Be sure to check out the Sources sidebar.  And there's a book upcoming: Early Louisiana Furniture: The Colonial and Federal Periods, 1735-1835, by Jack D. Holden and H. Parrott Bacot, published by The Historic New Orleans Collection.

It's good to know that many of New Orleans' historical sites have not all been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
