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.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful design resource book of over 100 iconic homes of creatives such as designers, architects, artists and fashion designers of the 20th and 21st century. The homes are arranged chronologically and there's great diversity in style from Tony Duquette to Frank Lloyd Wright, from Williams Haines to Jean Cocteaux. There's a short bio on the owners and usually one or two large page images with some smaller images of each home. Often the exterior of each home is featured.

This book is thick, heavy and colorful of about 350 pages. Most of the photos were taken in the past few years by Richard Powers, a renowned photographer, so the images are fresh. For those who are fascinated by the evolution of design, you may be fascinated by this intriguing volume.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
