I have a number of design books and was excited to order this one to add to my range. What a disappointment. The title is misleading. It should be called India Bad Taste. It is full of gaudy over the top rooms and there are only brief shimmers of good design. The best shot by far, is the one on the cover.

I have been disappointed with a lot of "visual" books like this, but not here! The book is stunning and can give you design ideas from the very simple to the very complex. Gorgeous rooms - you can go through the book over and over to get new ideas or just to admire.

I purchased this book for one of my best friends and his fiance. He's Indian and she's American but they're both young hipsters living in Brooklyn. So I imagine that they'll want to decorate their home together with all kinds of IKEA-esque design queues and something they saw in a DWELL magazine, etc. But knowing my friend he'd also like moments inspired by Indian design scattered about his modern dwelling. So I figured they'd appreciate the book. I never opened it; only wrapped it up and gave it to them for Christmas. Well his fiance loved it and even sent me the sweetest thank you card. My buddy says now she won't stop about all the things she's gonna do to the house. You bet, man!

Format: Hardcover
Featuring a thoroughly 'reader friendly' text that is enhanced with 261 colored illustrations, "India Contemporary" by Henry Wilson is a compendium of commentary and examples of interior designs and design elements that are breathtakingly beauty in their exotic compositions. These are samples and examples of interior design that are radically modern while hauntingly traditional, evoking the traditional crafts of the Indian subcontinent and wonderfully demonstrate the international appeal of uniquely Indian design sensibilities. As informed and informative as it is inspired and inspiring, "India Contemporary" should be considered 'must' reading for student designers, and a highly recommended reference for professional, academic, and community library Interior Design collections.
