Christophe Pourny’s The Furniture Bible–aka The Furniture Bible: Everything You Need to Know to Identify, Restore & Care for Furniture–delivers on everything you’d expect from the full title of the book. If you’re looking to learn about identifying, restoring and caring for furniture, there is no better tome of knowledge than this one. In addition to imparting all that knowledge on everything from Ceruse, Vernis Anglais, Water Gilding and many other techniques you’ll need to know to restore these pieces, the book also delivers knowledge about the general provenance and history of furniture you might hope to restore after finding it in a family basement or at an estate sale.


This versatile, single-person fireplace emits a cozy warmth whenever you need it to, while also being doubly useful as a safe cooking surface for small items like skewers and s’mores. Since it takes just 5 ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol fuel for roughly 50 minutes of burn time, you’re set for the foreseeable future with just the medicine cabinet staples. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks great.
