From the Author
This book has been a long time in the making. It's a celebration of a century of pioneering interior design from around the world, with special photography throughout by Richard Powers. Creating and curating this book has been a wonderful journey of discovery, from Edith Wharton's American home down through the decades to Marc Newson's London apartment. Along the way we've captured the homes of some of the great innovators of the 20th century, such as Piero Fornasetti, Tony Duquette, Terence Conran, Andrée Putman, Jonathan Adler and Karim Rashid.
It's the kind of book that can be enjoyed as a feast for the eyes, with hundreds of vibrant images and an enticing, fresh layout. But the ambition was to also create texts and commentaries that are engaging, entertaining and educational.
The breadth of styles and the many varied approaches to creating landmark interior spaces are the things that make this book really stand out. We hope that there truly is something for everyone within this journey through a hundred plus years of design history. We trust that you will enjoy the trip as much as we have.
