Carl J. Dellatore’s new book, Interior Design Master Class, published by Rizzoli Books, has become the number one design book in the country after only 3 weeks in print. I am honored to be one of the top 100 American designers chosen to be in the book. This month, Design, the newly redesigned magazine of ASID NY, singled out my essay in their “good reads” section.Poised to become the essential book on design, Interior Design Master Class collects the expertise and knowledge of the best interior designers working today. Opening Interior Design Master Class is like sitting down to the best dinner party you’ve ever attended. A classic in the making, America s top designers range from established design legends to members of the new guard that explore in detail the process of designing a home, from the fundamentals to the finishing touches.
Grouped by theme, the subjects range from practical considerations (Bunny Williams on “Comfort,” Etienne Coffinier and Ed Ku on “Floor Plans”) and details (Victoria Hagan on “Light,” Rose Tarlow on “Books”) to inspiration (Glenn Gissler, “Alchemy”(click here for a great interview with Carl), Jeffrey Bilhuber on “America” and Charlotte Moss on “Couture”) and style (Kelly Wearstler on “Glamour,” Alexa Hampton on “Tradition”).
Each piece is paired with images of the designer’s work to illustrate the principles being discussed, annotated with informative captions. Unique in the quality of its contributors, this is a book that readers will refer to again and again for advice and inspiration, an invaluable resource for practical tips and thought-provoking design.
This is one cocktail table book that you will actually read.
