Running Time
8 Hrs. 30 Min.


Rybczynski walks us through five centuries of homes both great and small, from the smoke-filled manor halls of the Middle Ages to the designer houses of today. Along the way, he masterfully depicts the confluences of social and economic conditions and national character, uncovering the checkered past of furnishings we take for granted, such as chairs, which were once considered quite strange.
