An enduring visual sourcebook of information and inspiration, Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century is the ultimate global celebration of residential interior design and decorating, past, present, and future, including examples from designers, decorators, patrons, artists, and influencers.
Interiors showcases 400 exceptional rooms organized from A-Z. It features the “greats” of interior design and decoration, such as Elsie de Wolfe, Billy Baldwin, and Nancy Lancaster, alongside contemporary stars like Roman and Williams, India Mahdavi, and Joseph Dirand. The projects range from extraordinary chateaux, town houses, and luxury penthouses to desert ranches, beach houses, and tiny jewel-like apartments in 6 continental regions and over 25 countries.
The book goes beyond decorators, designers, and architects to also including directional interiors by fashion designers, artists, film stars, style icons, and influencers whose homes have made memorable contributions to the world of interior design. Noteworthy homes include those of fashion designers Bill Blass, Pierre Cardin, Gianni Versace, and Coco Chanel, as well as artists Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Salvador Dali.
With an introduction by William Norwich, interior design and fashion editor formerly of Vogue and The New York Times, Interiors has been created and commissioned by a team of Phaidon editors and includes three original essays by Graeme Brooker, the Head of the School of Fashion and Interiors at Middlesex University, London; David Netto, interior designer and writer; and Carolina Irving, interiors editor.
