The Iconic Interior features 100 of the most important and influential interiors from around the world. Designed by a broad spectrum of fashion designers, artists and architects, set designers and decorators, these private spaces represent a wide range of styles, periods, and aesthetics. Here are such unforgettable spaces as Billy Baldwin’s design for Diana Vreeland’s New York City home; Edith Wharton’s famous New England house, The Mount; Coco Chanel’s legendary Paris apartment; Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House; Tony Duquette’s California estate, Dawnridge; and Piero Fornasetti’s Villa Fornasetti. Organized chronologically, many of the interiors have been photographed specially for this book. Along with the lush photographs, each description is accompanied by a short biography of the owner/designer. The Iconic Interior is a complete guide to 100 years of influential, gorgeous design.

Praise for The Iconic Interior:

“Both educational and inspiring. . . . Every page contains surprises and unanticipated delights.” —Veranda magazine

“The range is deep and broad, featuring not only sumptuous and stately standards like Coco Chanel’s Paris flat and Jacques Garcia’s Normandy chateau, but also Dieter Rams’s functionalist Frankfurt digs and John Pawson’s understated London home.” —Architectural Digest
