The story of an American design classic
"In a very real sense, the Hoosier cabinet was a key element in the transformation of the American kitchen from the littleseen, outoftheway domain of servants to the focus of all family activity. This book should appeal to the American imagination." Mary Ellen Polson, senior editor of Old House Interiors magazine
"Old house owners and restorers, interior designers, architects, contractors, historic preservationists, kitchen designers, and antique collectors would love a book like this." Jane Powell, author of Bungalow Kitchens
Loaded with labor and time-saving conveniences, the Hoosier cabinet was among the earliest design innovations of the modern American kitchen. This culinary workstation allowed owners to maintain an efficient and clutter-free kitchen by centralizing utensils, cookware, tools, and ingredients all the while providing a space in which to prepare the meals of the day. Bloomington-based cabinetmaker Nancy R. Hiller draws on her years of specialty cabinet making and thorough knowledge of interior design to deliver an entertaining, beautiful, and informative history of the Hoosier cabinetrevealing its influence on the development of the contemporary American home.
