5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Design That Shows Asian Heritage, August 23, 2005
This review is from: Contemporary Asian Bedrooms (Contemporary Asian Home Series) (Hardcover)
This book on bedrooms is one of a series of books on the design of modern homes in Asia. In this book, gone are the traditional views we have in mind of the small sleeping mat on the floor of the traditional Japanese bedroom.

Instead, these homes are primarily located further south: Bali, Singapore, Thailand. Here the beds are more in the traditional western style, elevated above the floor with traditional pillows and coverings. Still however, the location in Asia, with Asian architects and customers provides for design touches that are both striking and subtlely different from the standard American design. For instance many of the designs have updated appearing mosquito netting. This reflects more on the history of the location rather than the current needs in locations where these homes are located.

Beautifully photographed and printed, this book will serve as an idea book for ideas that could well be incorporated into standard western designs.
