Showcasing a selection of Navone's most recent interiors from all over the globe, Bailey's book, out now from Pointed Leaf Press, offers a window into the designer's dynamic, free-flowing, and often cheeky world. (Lauren Ro Curbed New York, November 14, 2016)
The book is a visual feast of Navone's work on products, homes and hospitality spaces. (Indesignlive Hong Kong, September 22, 2016)
A Thai word meaning 'ordinary,' Tham ma da doesn't refer to Navone's design sense, however, nor is it an adjective to describe the interiors she creates. But it is perhaps a fitting description of how she can take a humble material and multiply it so that the effect is something much, much greater. (Jill Singer Sight Unseen, November 4, 2016)
Spencer Bailey expertly narrates and showcases Navone's work as a unique conceptualization of ordinary spaces into imaginative and inspiring projects. (Metropolis)
Her [Paola Navone's] interiors often feature collections of utilitarian objects - Chinese soup spoons, tea kettles, Legos - that she transforms into magical, memorable tableaux. (ELLE Décor)
Spencer Bailey's nearly 400-page book, from Pointed Leaf Press, gives an in-depth tour of the designer's bold interiors - from hotels in Miami and Phuket, Thailand, to private residences in Italy and France. (Galerie)
The quality of the interiors… which are particularly strong, representing her gift for mixing textures, colors, unexpected objects, and fresh color combinations, all reflecting the deep sensuality of the interiors. (Daniella on Design)
Sheltering from a rainstorm inside my local bookshop, I pick up Tham Ma Da: The Adventurous Interiors of Paola Navone – largely because its electric-turquoise cover caught my eye. Within minutes, I am curled up in a nearby club chair, surreptitiously pulling out my iPhone and snapping away. (How To Spend It)
Tham ma da presents several projects Navone has worked on in the past decade, including home, hospitality and retail spaces projects from Miami and Phuket, to Italy and France. (Invasioni)
This book is a showcase of all her amazing achievements and comes from the editor-in-chief at Surface magazine, who has a strong background in design. Over 200 illustrations pack a gathering that includes accessories by major brands to pair with bold and different interiors ranging from hotels to private residences in Europe. The result is a gorgeous catalog her works and an architectural and interior design production highly recommended for any arts collection. (The Bookwatch)
