OFF THE SCALE OF ONE TO TEN. AND BACK AGAIN. THE PERFECT TEN VOLUME SET OF GLOBAL INTERIORS. PUBLISHED IN JAPAN BETWEEN 1971 AND 1976. FIVE YEARS OF WORLD CLASS HOMES AND HOUSES. IN ANY OF WHICH WE COULD HAPPILY LIVE FOREVER.
Supremely good. But no. The Supreme bookends are not included. Ten volumes in the set - the first five of which have horizontal stripe slipcases. Very fetching.
Light on the inside...
Light on the inside/outside.
There are some seriously desirable properties here. Loving the grand piano in the upstairs, windows on both sides, super room. Might have gone for an all white model - but, hey, not everyone is John Lennon. Also massively enjoying the right and left loungers for the high net worth couple that hate each other. This might be the perfect home!
No less of a dream interior. We love a flat flat photo. Desk at the back has a neatly sloped typewriter ledge.
All the volumes are excellent (Houses in USA, Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Frank Lloyd Wright specials x 2) but some are more excellent than others. Reference No.5 Apartment Interiors.
Gae Aulenti designed Milanese apartment interior from the fifth volume. A whole flock of François-Xavier Lalanne's sheep. They do have a practical application btw - you can sit on them.
Sadly feel like this high kitsch style has somewhat fallen out of favour. Well, could we bring it back?!
Go bust! Gae Aulenti again. Architect, furniture designer, interior designer. She was SO GOOD!
800 pages between them. And for the whole set - only £700. You may not need ever buy an architecture / interiors book e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶a̶g̶a̶i̶n̶ for about a week.
We have been steadily working away in the background building up sets. We have three now. And they are yours to buy on the button below.
ALL THE SUPERBOOKS AND AMAZINES. GOOD GRIEF THIS WEEK IS GOOD. NEW WAVE, TOKYO TEENS, THE MOMA ARTISTS' COOKBOOK. AND KEANU AND PETER BEARD, CHLOË SEVIGNY AND YOKO ONO. PLUS 750 MORE TO EXPLORE ON THE STORE.
Probably is the best selection of superbooks and amazines at any one time in any one place in the whole history of the world.
