Editorial Reviews

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.

The spaces that are included in the book are very lush and beautiful. The ideas that the designers and architects created could be looked at as a primer for those new to design and an ode to those of us who have been designing for years.

The cover photo is not a good indication of what's inside the book. Inside, there are a bunch of old pictures of old interior design from the 70s or 80s. And, in my opinion, even those historical design pics are fairly poor design, cluttered and disorganized messes. And poor photography to boot.

I feel I completely wasted my money, even buying it used. When they don't let you look inside a decorating book, it's probably a dead giveaway that you wouldn't buy it if you could see what's in there. Might be of interest to students of interior design for historical info, but really not very good for someone looking for inspiration. Don't be fooled by the cover of this book.

This is a MAGNIFICENT visual presentation of interiors of great tastemakers and designers. However, I am disappointed with the letter font that was used to describe the pictures - the letters were too minuscule and I have to use a MAGNIFYING glass to read the descriptions. I notice that there is too much space left empty on the pages; space that could have been used for bigger letter font.
