Classics:[the little black dresses of interior design]
- About Author
Just as fashion has the simple black dress that hangs in every woman's closet, interior design and decorating have their own classics of design. These are the hard-to-pin-down classic elements that make a room look great, from the Noguchi coffee table to the utilitarian Emeco dining room chair, from the camel-back sofa to the sleigh bed, from the Venetian glass chandelier to Philippe Starck's colorful plastic table lamp. These are the pieces professional designers count on and count IN as building blocks for making rooms beautiful: classic chairs, tables, lounges, beds, storage, and accessories. This book reveals the ten design must-haves in seven classic categories, and shows readers how to use the shapes, furniture, colors, textures, and accents to make the right decisions in all your decorating.
