Object Literature

Adam Brothers

James & Robert Adam were the first English designers to advocate an integrated style for architecture and interiors; with walls, ceilings, fireplaces, furniture, fixtures, fittings and carpets as a single uniform scheme. Their espousement of the Palladian style defined the Neo-Classism of the last quarter of the 18th Century. Sir John Soane’s Museum in Lincoln’s Inn, London, houses some four thousand of their watercolour designs.
