Description: In her charming new book, Myrna Kaye tells the story of the American home through the development of its furniture, the introduction of the porch and outdoor living, the various rooms and their functions, and regional and ethnic styles.

There's a Bed in the Piano brings American social history to life to change the way people see ordinary things. Guided by old letters and diaries, bits of world history, and debunked myths, readers learn to "read" rooms and furniture for clues to social and cultural ties. The chapters are filled with odd and amusing facts (there actually was a bed built into a piano) and fascinating explanations of the wonders of the home. Detailed period photographs, engravings, and views of rooms and objects illuminate the text and provide a window into homes from the past.

There's a Bed in the Piano is sure to delight people interested in antiques, the decorative arts, interiors, and social history. Here is an imaginative telling of how and why our homes are as they are and what it has been like to live in America.
