An excellent book.....an added bonus are the blueprints of the houses and apartments featured in the book...it helps you understand the decisions made by the designer. I'm sure I will enjoy this book more and more as time goes by, just as it happens with a good painting.

So typical of all David Easton's work, this book is erudite, elegant and thoroughly enjoyable. The text is captivating and gracious as Easton tells the story of each project presented. Most of the photos are previously unpublished and are stellar. I greatly appreciated the inclusion of floor plans of many of the projects and only wish he had included one of Balderbrae, his one-time country home. In spite of the fact that our design sensibilities have become simpler, even his grand projects of twenty-plus years ago are still stunningly handsome and, well, timelessly elegant. This one is definitely a five-star book.

The book title says it all "Timeless Elegance". David Easton's interiors all seem to have that timeless, beautiful quality. This designer is a trained architect with a beautiful sense of integrating interior design and architecture. He takes you through his process of creating homes for the very wealthy. Although the clients have great means, the interiors have an ease and comfort about them - you could easily curl up and read a book. The projects are all over the US and the book gives you a good sense of the designers range and style. I especially enjoyed reading his comments - which isn't always the case with these types of books. My only criticism...I would like to see more!

In perusing the pictures in this book, it is fascinating to see that the designer is as talented at decorating modern rooms using modern decor as he is at designing classical decor. Usually it's obvious that a designer is more comfortable and better in one metier over another, and it will show. Not with Mr. Easton. He excels at both!

After reading about Easton's past schooling and training, then you can understand why he has such virtuosity with an array of styles. He had intensive training in both modern and classic styles, combined with the privilege of working at Parish-Hadley, and teaching design history at Parsons School of Design. I'm always fascinated how top designers, or talented folks in any field, display an early interest in it as a child as Easton did. My own father, a car designer who worked with Raymond Loewy (often called the father of industrial design), used to beg my grandmother to take him down to the Chicago train yards so he could sketch the new aerodynamically-shaped trains. It was interesting to read Easton's own words about his early sketches, and leanings towards design, going to museums and stores to look at rooms.

This book is as interesting to read, as it is to view the pictures, and that's saying a lot! Occasionally you read about someone's life and think, if you couldn't be yourself, now that's a life to trade places with, at least for a month or even better a year. I had that experience reading this book--to have had the experiences and schooling in design that Mr. Easton did, and to have that talent at his fingertips to enjoy developing, would be a gift.

Timeless Elegance is the perfect title for this book. David Easton has in this volume, a portfolio of breath taking apartments and homes. The photograps are wonderful and the book was a pleasure to read. I look at this book often and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys traditional and classic interiors.
