Editorial Reviews

Review

"Citizens know that life in any city is all about relationships, not only between people, but also between people and places. Eva Hagberg offers a surprisingly fresh and original insight into architecture by collecting a peculiar group of interiors that, no matter how recently established, are able to zoom straight into people's memory and create a sense of belonging and familiarity because they feel like they have always been there—for you."
—Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator, Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art

 
"Eva Hagberg has found a way to look at interiors with an analysis that combines psychology, style, fashion, architecture, and art. Instead of merely celebrating the stylishness of the spaces, she gives us an insight into why we want to be in them, and how the imagined and constructed past they contain is really about our present needs. This is as much a book about desire as it is about design."
—Roy McMakin, Artist

"A new book extolling the design trend of the past several years—a recreated, embellished vintage look incorporating brick, iron, wood, velvet, and fur—at last christens a genre of interior design seen from New York to Paris."
—Kelsey Keith, Fast Company

"Hagberg’s command of language and her appreciation of the aesthetics she’s surveying make the book an enjoyable read."
—Roaming by Design

This book is even better than I expected! The text, though minimal, captures the essence of each of the 25 venues described. It is also intelligently expressed and descriptive. There are several images of each restaurant, hotel or domestic interior, which convey a sense of the design of each. It covers interiors designed by Roman and Williams, AvroKo and others who follow a passion for the handcrafted and historically rich. Overall, this is a text which is easy on the eye and extremely enjoyable to read.
