Book DescriptionThis definitive volume presents trendsetting homes from the forefront of architecture and decorating that have appeared in The New York Times Magazine. The last book of home stories from The New York Times Magazine was 1976+s the New YorkTimes Book of Interior Design and Decoration. Now eagerly collected by design aficionados, it is a comprehensive and astute look at the work of the best designers of the time. This successor to that volume represents what is happening now at the forefront of the architecture and decorating worlds. The featured houses and apartments run the gamut from big to small, modest to grand, retro to cutting-edge. There are homes located in and around New York, Idaho, California, and Miami, and designed by such prominent architects as Le Corbusier, Gio Ponti, and BFive Studio. Many of them prove to be personal and vivid portraits of the people who designed them or live in them. About half the dwellings shown are designers+ own homes, including those of architect Ron Radziner and artist/designer Jonathan Adler, and two homes of famed designers Diamond Baratta. Stage performer Joel Grey has a home featured here as well. The great diversity of the homes shows that of all of today+s trends, eclecticism rules.
