Making House features the houses and apartments of leading interior, furniture, and product designers homes by designers, as designed for themselves including the abodes of well-known figures such as Jonathan Adler, Marc Newson, Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci of Dimore Studio, and Stephen Sills. A great degree of inspiration is to be found among the personal homes and interiors of the masters. Designers, architects, and artists are free to experiment in a way that is unique, without any of the traditional limitations of a client-commissioned project. These are laboratories of invention. They are also private retreats, which offer a range of design solutions for common challenges from which the reader may glean new ideas and the motivation to make such ideas real. Beautifully illustrated, this volume is at once a document and a celebration of some of the most inspiring homes from around the world and the creative minds and personalities behind them, photographed specifically for this book.
Writer and journalist Dominic Bradbury and photographer Richard Powers have produced more than twenty books on design, architecture, and interiors between them. Among their most successful books are The Iconic House and its successor, The Iconic Interior.
