One century of interior design in a new book
Most books about interior design or decoration focus on one designer, one period, or one trend. "Inspired Design: The 100 Most Important Interior Designers of the Past 100 Years" it's different because it has the big picture with the most important names of the history of interior design.
Each designer is profiled and illustrated with beautiful images, and with insightful, in-depth profiles with three to four photographs of their best work.
In this book, the author, Jennifer Boles, founder of the blog The Peak of Chic (award-winning and one of the first design blogs), tells the whole story of interior design.
In the 400 pages of the book, you will find, for example, the profile and the work of the emissary of Parisian chic and culture, Andrée Putman, who rediscovered and reissued early Modernist French furniture and then went on to a renowned global career as a designer of interiors. She was responsible for the look of Morgan’s first major boutique hotel, in New York, the Guerlain flagship store in Paris and many private residences in Dublin, Miami, Rome, Tel Aviv or Shanghai.
Also a special note to Britain’s most stylish interior designer, Nicholas Haslam, the design chameleon and “rock star” who designed the homes of Mick Jagger, Ringo Starr, Rod Stewart and Bryan Ferry and also known for his lavish parties with Andy Warhol or Marilyn Monroe.
This is the most coveted list of all in the world of interior design and one of the most beautiful books on this subject. A must have for any collector of interior design books, professionals or students of interior design and everyone interested in the decoration of houses.
