Format: Hardcover
Emily Edermans' impressive book Regency Redux is a lavish volume published by Rizzoli.
The text is akin to a dissertation on the subject of an overview of the Regency style formed by the ancient Greeks and Romans, and adopted in 18th, 19th, and 20th century France, England and The United States of America.
The text is chockfull of historical facts, but written in a breezy style accessible to Recamier readers. Peppered with Regency era words like `the bon ton' and `paste pot decor' and 'beswagging', it puts you in the milieu of decorators, upholsterers, drapers, furniture makers, and their clients of the era.
The illustrations and photographs are spectacular.
The time line from the ancients to period styles of 1700's, and up to modern interpretation in 20th century Hollywood to the present day Regency influences is jaw dropping.
We basically owe our present style of decorating to the Regency period of the 1700's and 1800's: Free floating furniture placement; furniture that does double duty; sumptuous color; over painting old inexpensive pieces to make them current; decorating with "paste pot" wallpaper and draperies; hand painted murals; mixing the old with the new - are all things initiated back then, and still very much the way we decorate today.
The term Hollywood Regency has been erroneously applied to anything Mid 20th Century. A movie Regency look really took place from the 1920's - 1930's, based on the European tendencies of Moderne and Art Deco, which in turn referenced certain classical forms.
A glamorous Hollywood style evolved and developed from the 1930's into the 40's and 50's, the first design for the people movement. If a home decorator saw it on the movie screen, vendors soon enough sold the look for home use.

This book has been an inspiring resource for me as a designer - a wealth of information in terms of fantastic photos and informative text. The photos are a great mix of vintage and contemporary, real life and from the movies, color and black and white. Every time I pick it up I find new details to be inspired by. These interiors are a great way to explore interesting proportions, materials and details, and a reminder to add a little glamour and fantasy to our lives! Also, as a fan of movies from the 30s and 40s I especially love the chapter on Hollywood REgency which includes some of my favorites, Cedric Gibbons and Van Nest Polglase.

I anxiously awaited the release of the book because I love KWID so much!!! I have recently grown in my design sense and have adapted Neoclassical/Regency into my home. I wanted to see this book and review it over and over for inspiration. I must admit the inspiration never came. This book is like a low grade reproduction of the wonderful and fabulous, Tony Duquette Book. I would recommend that one.

Beautiful and interesting images, excellent interior choices; very well written and researched. We bought it for our research library and thoroughly enjoyed it - as well as finding one of our recently acquired pieces in it photographed in the 1930s, helping to increase our knowledge of this item's history

Format: Hardcover
"Regency Redux" is really more of a text book on the history of design styles, which includes gorgeous photos of some of the most beautiful interiors in private homes and the movies. An absolute must-have for design fans of both the Regency design style and of old Hollywood movies.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in this book's treatment of regency style, its different incarnations, and its influence. The discussion of the original regency period is instructive and the accompanying pictures are well matched to the text. Beyond that, the book attempts to discuss too wide a range of regency-related topics and gives very little real discussion or insight on most of the topics. The cliche "a mile wide and an inch deep" certainly applies to the discussion of Art Deco (?) and to some extent, the discussion of Hollywood Regency and Vogue Regency. The accompanying pictures are grainy, don't always illustrate the text on the surrounding pages, and aren't necessarily the best presentations of the style. The Dorothy Draper pictures are good, but you can probably find better examples in a book about Dorothy Draper or the Greenbrier. Overall, the book is a good idea that is not well executed.
