The Iconic Interior: 1900 to the present – Dominic Bradbury
Modern design, architecture and interiors are Dominic Bradbury’s speciality so this follow up to his book The Iconic House also published by Thames and Hudson, falls right in the sweet spot of his knowledge and expertise.
Bradbury argues in his introduction to this book that the explosion of interest in design and decorating personal spaces is a democratic and creative movement and that now, more than ever, there is increased interest in shaping our personal spaces. While iconic interiors from the 20th Century and beyond might be formed by bold ideas and craftsmanship this all filters down to the way in which we choose to live in our (Western) houses today. Bradbury’s book features not just iconic interiors, such as Coco Chanel’s Parisian apartment and Robin and Lucienne Day’s house in West Sussex, but also the work of influential designers and decorators such as John Fowler and Nancy Lancaster.
Put together this book presents not just a feast of inspiring interiors from the 20th Century but also a guide to our changing tastes.
