Description

A rich visual history celebrating a century of the magazine’s publication, Architectural Digest at 100 presents the best from the pages of the international design authority. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Before the Manhattan penthouses and the Paris pieds-à-terre, and before the superyachts and Balinese pleasure domes came to its attention, Architectural Digest was singularly focused on the glories of California, where the magazine was born, a native Angeleno, in 1920. Plus, linen only gets better over time; softening and growing more comfortable with each wash and use.

In his first book, the noted New York-based stylist and designer reveals the tricks of the trade, detailing how he balances proportion, scale, palette and texture when composing arrangements for the coffee table, mantelpiece, bedside table, bookshelf and more. Good coffee table books are a thing of beauty: a collection of inspiring photographs and informative words to flick through during an idle moment; and, in its best form, a decorative object in its own right. All around the world, today’s boldest feats of architecture and design don’t just dazzle the eye, they defy expectations—blurring genres and reinventing traditions. Julius Shulman and other master photographers chronicled their work in elegant images that helped sell the progressive style to a skeptical public weaned on European-inflected traditionalism.

Best A-list Celebrity Homes of the Past 100 Years: A New Book by Architectural Digest Looks Back at the Most Glamorous Homes Ever to Appear in its Pages, . Our collection of modern heirlooms are designed as the ultimate investment pieces: timeless, long lasting and, hopefully, to one day be handed down for others to enjoy. Ranging freely between present and past, the book features the personal spaces of dozens of private celebrities like Barack and Michelle Obama, David Bowie, Truman Capote, David Hockney, Michael Kors, and Diana Vreeland, and includes the work of top designers and architects like Frank Gehry, David Hicks, India Mahdavi, Peter Marino, John Fowler, Renzo Mongiardino, Oscar Niemeyer, Axel Vervoordt, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Elsie de Wolfe. It comes as no surprise this stunning monograph is packed with star power, too; you’ll get a glimpse inside the homes of Barack and Michelle Obama, David Bowie, David Hockney and more.

We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. The book is really a survey of how Americans have lived - and how American life has changed - over the past 100 years. In all this, linguistic techniques are given only as much space as the book's examples make necessary.From Irving Gill to Cliff May to the stars of the Case Study crowd—Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig, Craig Ellwood, et al. Among these are the evolution of a home, how to create a restful haven amid the bustle of the modern world, and the expert blend of colour, pattern, comfort and luxury for which Campbell is so well known and loved. Also included are stunning images from the magazine's history by photographers such as Bill Cunningham, Horst P.
