Happy New Year from the RFS!
A quick reminder that volume 31, the 2017 edition, of the Regional Furniture Journal is currently available to all members.
In keeping with our policy of providing free and open access to back issues, the 2015 Journal is now available online here, on our Journal web page.
The sharp eyed amongst you may have noticed that we have gradually been making past Journal articles available on the Journal back issues page of this site.
Volumes 1 -23 (1989 -2009) – that’s 20 years of regional furniture research articles – are now accessible to read and download for study and enjoyment. Included are all the special and themed issues of the Journal.
We hope to publish the 2010-2014 volumes shortly. The current issue (Volume 30 – 2016) of Regional Furniture is, of course, only available to RFS members, but the back issues will be published on this website after a three year delay.

Thanks to a nice mention in Peter Follansbee’s blog Joiner’s Notes (which is well worth a look) we have had a flurry of new followers whom we would like to welcome. We hope very much that you will be inspired to join the Society and enjoy all the benefits of membership!
The latest editions of the RFS Newsletter and Journal have been published and are being sent to existing members this week. The newsletter has a full report on this summer’s conference and AGM in Edinburgh, as well as reports on recent RFS visits. The Journal this year contains six essays exploring inventories as source and evidence for furniture types, placement and use in specific homes and among different social classes.
There are two editions each year of the newsletter and an annual edition of the Journal – free to members. A list of past articles and contributors is available here. Join the Regional Furniture Society here and receive your copy of the latest newsletter and Journal.
