What does a modernist have in common with an obsessive collector? The gallery owner with the artist? A metal warehouse with a chalet-style bungalow?
Domestic Art leads you on a tour through inspiring and individualistic interiors, from a 500-square-foot bedsit to a Philip Johnson architectural wonder. Thirty-five projects in all document nearly a decade of deftly designed and smartly styled interiors from the pages of PaerCity magazine. In this book, a designer builds her dream home - cantilevered over an earthquake fault. A gallery owner brings a circa - 1880s home back from the brink of decay and generations of nesting squirrels. The designs range from follies to disciplined mansions, from John and Dominique de Menil"s iconic inernational-style house outfitted by couturier Charles James to a Philippe Starck-laden love nest by Mikyung Chun that channels the Flintstones and the Jetsons. Call it what you will - lavish, loopy, eccentric, assemblages, moody modernism. Whether you browse for inspiration, curiosity, or envy, Domwstic Art reveals fascinating snapshots of today"s best, and most intriguing, interior design.
