From Rustic to Urban, Classic to Colourful
Into the gap between the antique and the new, there is retro. Done well, the style works with architecture of every period. Drawing together stunning, rarely seen photographs from the exclusive Côté Maison magazines, this book explains how to achieve the perfect retro interior. It explores different interpretations of the look, from Rustic Reclamation to Structural Industrial, and how to combine the different elements – furniture, mirrors, lighting and textiles – in a striking and unusual yet sympathetic manner.
20th-Century Design for Contemporary LIving
Currently there is a movement away from bland flatpack furniture in favour of 20th-century design classics that combine traditional craftsmanship with modern style. Well-illustrated in colour throughout, this collector’s guide explores the key movements, from art deco through mid-century modern and pop art to postmodernism, and explains how to select vintage pieces and integrate them stylishly into a modern home. Includes a directory of designers and manufacturers, and suppliers.
