About the book
James Magni’s highly sophisticated, modern home design is highly sought after the world over and showcased here for the first time. Magni Modernism displays the designer’s sensibilities through 14 private residences found in such diverse locales as Beverly Hills, Mexico City, Jackson Hole, Aspen, and Moscow. With elegant restraint, Magni’s interiors complement the architecture of these magnificent homes, reflecting his training as an architect and spotlighting the buildings’ dramatic lines, open spaces, and spectacular views. From the limestone walls of a penthouse in Mexico City to the dark wood and concrete of a home in the mountains of Jackson Hole, each residence is beautifully captured in photographs and accompanied by an insightful and engaging text by design writer Marc Kristal.
