More than 400 of the world’s best living spaces created by over 300 of the most influential people in interior design in one luxurious book

Oversized and available in four collectable velvet covers to decorate any space in style, Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century is the ultimate global celebration of residential interior design and decorating.

With over 400 rooms organized by designer from A-Z, the book goes beyond decorators, designers, and architects to highlight exquisite interiors designed by fashion designers, artists, style icons, and film stars who have made a unique contribution to the world of interior design.

Covering work from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day, the book features everything from extraordinary chateaux, stunning town houses, and luxury penthouses – to desert ranches, beach houses, and tiny jewel-like apartments in more than 25 countries.

This gorgeous volume includes the “greats” of interior design, such as Elsie de Wolfe, Billy Baldwin, and Colefax & Fowler, alongside contemporary stars including Anouska Hempel, Kelly Hoppen, and Karim Rashid.

Noteworthy homes include those of fashion designers Bill Blass, Pierre Cardin, Gianni Versace, and Coco Chanel, as well as artists Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe, Cy Twombly, and Peggy Guggenheim.

Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century has been created and commissioned by Phaidon editors and the most influential people in interior design today. It also includes an introduction by William Norwich, interior design and fashion editor formerly of Vogue and the New York Times and three original essays by Graeme Brooker (Head of Interior Design at the Royal College of Art), David Netto (interior designer), and Carolina Irving (Carolina Irving Textiles).

This is the essential inspirational source book for design aficionados, anyone who is interested in beautiful rooms, and for everyone who cares about the spaces in which they live. Choose from four stunning covers, Midnight Blue, Saffron Yellow, Platinum Gray or Merlot Red.
