What's good about this book is that it is very focused with each chapter dedicated to an individual piece. Because of that, it doesn't feel verbose or like it is trying to accomplish too much in one book. But it also means that this is hardly a one-stop shop for decorating how-to's. (If you are expecting that in this book, you will probably be disappointed.) But the focus meant that by the end of the book I felt like I understood each furniture piece pretty well and was much more grounded in the different kinds of styles available. I also appreciated that the book was well designed and constructed. It seems silly, but there are a lot of design books out there that are surprisingly ugly, which I've always found amusing. I also enjoyed that beyond the focus of the 7 essential pieces there were good quotes of design wisdom here and there that really did make me think about how I decorate my place.
That said, there were some things in this book that kept it from being 5-stars for me.Read more ›
The book is beautifully laid out and a pleasure to read. Give a copy to every college graduate you know -- male or female!
Thanks for your insights and expertise. We are HUGE fans of yours.
