Around the At Home office, it’s no secret we love a good design book—both for the inspiration and ideas packed inside and for use in styling spaces in our own homes. Here are a few recent additions to our personal wish lists.
New England Modern showcases how New England designers are incorporating clean, cosmopolitan sensibilities into their designs.
Broaden your design worldview with a look at Beyond the West: New Global Architecture, which turns its focus toward design in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. This title comes out in September.
Canadian designer and HGTV darling Sarah Richardson released her third book, Collected: City + Country Volume 1, in April. Keep an eye out for the release of Volume 2, Collected: Past + Present, in October.
What’s an art lover to do when his favorite museums are closed? Collect books about the subject, of course! Two recent additions to the tabletops of Joshua Plumlee’s Ransom Interiors are MoMA Now and Lucian Freud: The Self-portraits. “They’re maybe more art than design books, but sometimes those make the best books,” Joshua says.
Finally, we’re excited our partners at Symphony Designer House have released a coffee table book commemorating their 25th year, A Celebration of Symphony Designer House. You can get your copy (and support the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Guild) at Phoenix Interiors or Providence Design in Little Rock or order online.
