Pretty pictures included for each designer. Book as a whole seems bland. Should have gotten more off-beat designer/decorators- too much beige and too many shells and buddahs! Not really "good" taste- just alot of the same. While you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, it seems lovely to think someone is inpired by spices and purses and flowers, etc. But the inspirations on the inside were mostly one-word answers, almost completely devoid of descriptive language. Would have wanted more.
I find the book very well put together, and very informative. It really introduces the idea of combining textures and colors in Interior Design, a concept that not everybody can understand when attempting to put a room together. It is fun to see the different designer's background, their taste and their creations!
A coffee table book showcasing top designers in the home furnishings industry. A compelling forward by Cary Kravet - of Kravet Inc - the leading supplier of fabrics and furnishings to the interior design trade starts the reader off on a journey into the inspirations which motivate each designer. The pictures are captivating and the Q&A is an enlightening way to find out more about the personalities behind the great design.
