Author: Bunny Williams
In this story-filled monograph, Bunny Williams presents new work through 15 houses she has decorated and loved. She tells the tale of each "affair," tracing the style of the spaces, what drew her to the projects, and her approach to decor that evolves with the lives of her clients. She offers personal secrets for choosing classics--and for decorating with flexible pieces that can play more than one role in a design scheme. Along the way, she offers many amazingly chic, but always comfortable, residences whose interiors she has designed during the latest phase of her astounding career.

A second volume to celebrate the master of interior design illustration. Inducted to the prestigious Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1987 Jeremiah Goodman has long been revered within the interior design community for his ability to infuse static rooms with warmth and personality. For almost seven decades his stylish and studied brushstrokes have chronicled the homes of powerbrokers in the upper reaches of the fashion and decorating worlds. Names like Bruce Weber, Carolina Herrera, Red Krakoff, and Tony Duquette populate a client list that reads like a page from Who's Who. Jeremiah: Inspired Interiors chronicles Goodman's life and work, drawing on paintings and photographs taken from his own extensive archive. More than mere illustrations, his paintings interpret and inspire, conveying how a space is experienced through the eyes of an artist. Jeremiah can evoke a brocade-upholstered chair or a Baroque mirror with a few calligraphic brushstrokes that both describe and animate. Indeed, so evocative and full of particularized information are Jeremiah's paintings that they form a unique record of the work of many of the great design personalities of the past half century. Simply put, Jeremiah's work comprises the best record of America's greatest interiors.

Interior Design Masters contains 300 biographical entries of people who have significantly impacted design. They are the people, historical and contemporary, that students and practitioners should know. Coverage starts in the late Renaissance, with a focus on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The book has five sections, with the entries alphabetical in each, so it can serve as a history textbook and a reference guide. The seventeeth- and eighteenth-century section covers figures from Thomas Chippendale to Horace Walpole. The nineteenth-century section includes William Morris and Candace Wheeler. The early twentieth-century section presents modernism’s design heroes, including Marcel Breuer, Eileen Gray, and Gilbert Rohde. The post-World War II designers range from Madeleine Castaing to Raymond Loewy. The final contemporary section includes Ron Arad and the Bouroullec brothers. These are the canonical figures who belong to any design history. The book also contains less well-known figures who deserve attention, such as Betty Joel, the British art deco furniture designer; Paul Veysseyre, the Frenchman active in China in the 1930s; and more recently Lanzavecchia-Wai, the Italian-Singaporean duo whose work ranges from health care to helicopters. Global in its coverage, the book is richly illustrated with over 600 black-and-white and color photographs.

Bringing together 12 original essays, Shaping the American Interior maps out, for the first time, the development and definition of the field of interiors in the United States in the period from 1870 until 1960. Its interdisciplinary approach encompasses a broad range of people, contexts, and practices, revealing the design of the interior as a collaborative modern enterprise comprising art, design, manufacture, commerce, and identity construction. Rooted in the expansion of mass production and consumption in the last years of the nineteenth century, new and diverse structures came to define the field and provide formal and informal contexts for design work. Intertwined with, but distinct from, architecture and merchandising, interiors encompassed a diffuse range of individuals, institutions, and organizations engaged in the definition of identity, the development of expertise, and the promotion of consumption. This volume investigates the fluid pre-history of the American profession of interior design, charting attempts to commoditize taste, shape modern conceptions of gender and professionalism, define expertise and authority through principles and standards, marry art with industry and commerce, and shape mass culture in the United States.

Publisher: Illuminating Engineering
In his book, Brandston¿s easy-to-understand writing style emphasizes lighting primarily as an art form. He believes one must go beyond being literate about the science of light and impresses upon the reader the importance of contextual and subjective considerations. ¿To see¿ is to use these factors to achieve a desired emotional response in the viewer and/or client. Brandston¿s holistic approach to lighting is reflected in the section titles of the book: Learning to See, Taking Responsibility, Creativity, and Communication. In the first section, he emphasizes the importance of understanding light relative to context, culture, demographics, and scale. The next section is about the ethics of delivering creativity¿within one¿ self and to the client--and the need to clearly communicate the creative vision to the client. In third section, Brandston discusses how to be creative: be loose, think, and lose one¿s inhibitions. The final section is about process: from obtaining input from the client, to drawing up a concept in a schematic design, to entering the construction phase. The book ends with appendices about lighting terms, ethics and design, and wit and wisdom.Adding to the text discussion are short vignettes and comments from legendary figures such as Oliver Sacks, Peter Boyce, Dan Ciampa, and others. Of particular interest are the author¿s sketches, offering insights into Brandston¿s thinking about his projects. Full color photographs throughout supplement the discussions, some of which are adjacent to sketches to demonstrate concept to reality. Both lighting designers and educated readers will find this book easily accessible, inspirational, and an interesting read.
