    Lamesa: The Philippine Table

    Reynaldo Gamboa Alejandro, Josephine Labrador Hermano

    Winner, National Book Award, Art, 1999
    This book serves as more than just a lavishly illustrated paean to the essential piece of furniture, which is often glorified in Filipino homes as the center of social activity. The book celebrates this collective place of honor and worship, while also tracing its evolution from the literally lowly dulang, now exalted in trendy rooms, to the chic masterpiece of design bedecked with the ultimate in cosmopolitan arrangement. A collection of Filipino tables and tablescapes featuring accouterments dating back to Filipino ancestral traditions rethought and redone in contemporary and cosmopolitan lifestyles.
