Icons: Bamboo Style, Angelika Taschen [Compiled]
2 Angelika Taschen [Compiled] Icons: Bamboo Style
Taschen 242888 Great Britain 2006 3822849677 / 9783822849675 Softcover Near Fine Condition Besides feeding pandas and making a yummy addition to many Asian dishes, bamboo is also used as a building material, both functional and decorative. The dried stems are extremely sturdy and lend themselves to a multitude of uses. Shigeru Ban, for example, found a way to create lumber from laminated woven bamboo for a house he designed in Beijing. Other houses show off bamboo in more straightforward ways, lining the ceilings or floors with stems, or even forming walls. Bamboo is also used to construct furniture, lending a chair or a bed a warm, earthy feeling. This unique look book captures the many uses of bamboo in houses throughout China, Japan, and Indonesia. 191 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Contemporary Country, Emily Chalmers with words by Ali Hanan
7 Emily Chalmers with words by Ali Hanan Contemporary Country
Ryland Peters & Small 231401 London 2006 184597249X / 9781845972493 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Many of us hanker after the relaxing, easy simplicity of country life, yet we aren't sure how to adapt this look to suit a modern home. That's where "Contemporary Country" comes in. It's about rekindling our love of the rustic idyll, but giving it a new twist. It's about taking the essence of country style - a way of living that is gentle, natural and grounded - and giving it a contemporary makeover. You don't have to live in the country to appreciate the lifestyle - its colours, textures and details look just as at home in urban spaces. In "Contemporary Country", Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan begin by looking at the elements that make up the style. They explore the use of natural materials and the way in which key structural features such as beams or staircases can be exposed so that living spaces flow naturally together. They look at furniture - painted or left with a natural finish - lighting, textiles, flooring and colour. The book then examines key areas of the home, from kitchens to sleeping spaces, and shows you how the look works with the help of over 200 inspiring photographs. It concludes with an indispensable suppliers' directory. *Traditional country style is given a contemporary makeover. *Vibrant photography by Debi Treloar 143 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Paris: Made by Hand, Pia Jane Bijkerk
13 Pia Jane Bijkerk Paris: Made by Hand
The Little Bookworm 228698 New York 2009 1892145707 / 9781892145703 Softcover Near Fine Condition There's a new trend among the young designers and decorators of Paris: an embracing of an aesthetic called fait main. Literally, this means "made by hand," but in this case it includes not only new items fashioned by hand but vintage objects and found objects that are valued as they are, or that may have been reworked. What unites them is the "handprint" of a talented creator. Stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk has discovered more than fifty places-organized into walks-that embody this style. Some are shops owned by professional chineurs, people who hunt out objects sought after by interior decorators, architects, and stylists. Other places aren't really shops but primarily studios, where, if you stop by, you can purchase something directly from the artist. You'll find a designer who makes glass jewelry; a couturier who sells fabric remainders, a few garments, and handwoven scarves; one boutique set up like a home, where reworked vintage housewares are displayed. Another place offers hand-knit baby clothes, another reworked antique French linens. Also included are nearby cafés, bakeries, cheese shops, and tearooms with artisanal foods that reflect the spirit of "made by hand." This is a book for all lovers of design and decorating. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Interior Design; United States; Art & Design; Art::Art & Design. ISBN/EAN: 9781892145703. Inventory No: 228698. Paperback

The Way We Live: An Ultimate treasury for Global Design Inspiration, Stafford Cliff
15 Stafford Cliff The Way We Live: An Ultimate treasury for Global Design Inspiration
Clarkson Potter 242400 New York 2003 1400051347 / 9781400051342 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Gilles De Chabaneix Spectacular in scope yet intimate in detail, The Way We Live transcends the archetypal style book to reveal global connections and patterns in home decoration. This unique body of detailed design inspiration encompasses the full range of options, from climate, location, and size to surfaces, arrangements, and colors. Whether you're decorating a beach house in Chile or a loft space in Paris, you're sure to be inspired by hundreds of images from around the world--a Moroccan house that coolly mixes the modern and traditional in elegant interiors; a dramatic arrangement of shells decorating a tabletop in Mauritius; flowers strewn across bare floorboards for a Christmas feast in Sweden. The enormous range of places here highlight connections and parallels of very different habitats in a way both striking and reassuring. The same attention to detail can clearly inform the layout of a dining room in a modest Mexican home as it does an exclusive club in Buenos Aires. This encyclopedic tome, a sublime visual record of how we construct and adorn our living spaces, celebrates our communal experience of the home. From coastal hamlet to urban center, design expert Stafford Cliff compares architectural styles and decorating details from every corner of the world, whether it is a modest adobe dwelling whose contours complement those of the earth or a skyscraper of glass and steel that contrasts the natural terrain. The ingenuity of each culture shines through in the instinctive use of colors and materials, and in the way the spaces are inhabited. The world tour of interior design elements and accents is lavishly presented in more than 1,000 glorious color photographs by famed lifestyle photographer Gilles de Chabaneix. Humble yet interesting structures, objects, and settings are all viewed with the same eye as the grandest homes, the rarest antiques, or the most exclusive addresses. From an unadorned Vietnamese sitting room to a bustling Neapolitan street market; a modern London flat to a baroque drawing room in Versailles; an Indian palace to a Chilean cafe, here is a world where old and new, organic and synthetic, happily coexist. And within these interiors, a myriad of choices and inspirations are seen in the contrasts between stark simplicity and sumptuous embellishment, minimal modernism and rococo splendor, the self-consciously urbane and the authentically rustic, the uniform and the eclectic. Fabrics, textures, and ornamental details reflect the complexity of different spaces and lifestyles, spurring countless ideas for personal self-expression. It seems that the way we live is not always defined by where we live. Commentary on communal open space, which connects us to one another, and a meticulous guide to sources and materials round out this ultimate treasury. Both beautiful and practical, The Way We Live is much more than a decorating guide--it is a design for living. 480 pages. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Illustrator: Gilles De Chabaneix. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Interior Design; United States; ISBN: 1400051347. ISBN/EAN: 9781400051342. Inventory No: 242400.

Conran octopus 241979 Great Britain 1995 Reprint 1850295557 / 9781850295556 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Think natural, loosen up, pare down, color in, and above all, live well! These are the key words of the new country living, and no home better exemplifies this wonderful philosophy than decorator Tricia Guild's Tuscan farmhouse. A tour around this warm and wonderful home is the centerpiece in a richly photographed look at what defines the best contemporary design. The first section, "A New Attitude," pinpoints the main features of this current approach. Then, the intimate glimpse into Guild's private world, as well as four other houses, spotlights her love of natural materials, her uncluttered arrangements, her loose approach to fabric, and bold use of color--as well as the inspiration she draws from the surrounding landscape. Rooms glow with brightness; her kitchen bursts with fresh produce; inside and out, tables are laid with embroidered cloths, jugs of garden flowers, vibrant mismatched plates, and delicious local foods. Finally, "Living and Entertaining" is an exhortation to fill your world with pleasure, and to bring exuberance not only to your décor and design, but to all you do. None of the ideas is expensive, and every one is innovative, easy, and life enhancing! 192 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
