Abstract

For millennia, furniture design has emulated architecture. In Western design, furniture has taken the structural conventions suggestive of a "little building" or an aedicule. This thesis will present close examination of the development of aedicular design through the ages with a chronological study of exemplary case pieces in the permanent collection at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
