Table Tonic Top 5: Interiors books

A crop of hot new interiors titles have just hit the shelves, so start writing those wishlists, Tonic-ettes!

(below) "For years (the now defunct) "Metropolitan Home" magazine published a favourite annual issue known as the "Design 100", which honoured invention and creativity in international design. "Metropolitan Home's Design 100" is, in a sense, a book-size version of the best selling issue, focusing on the best homes and the best rooms ever to have appeared in "Met Home".

(below) "'Interiors by yoo' aims to inspire the reader with design advice and thoughts from four of the most talented names in the design world: superstar designer Philippe Starck, rock royalty Jade Jagger, avantgarde Dutchman Marcel Wanders and queen of low-key luxe Kelly Hoppen. Over 192 pages, it brings together yoo’s most cutting-edge interior design projects for hotels and private residences around the world."

(below) "'Real Life Decor' brims with ideas for repurposing, reusing or replacing your accents and furniture to keep your home fresh and functional as well as wallet-friendly. Illustrated with lively photos and simple how-tos, the book is divided into 7 sections that offer multiple approaches to dressing up walls, sewing simple soft furnishings, recycling old furniture, brightening lamps and accents, making multipurpose furnishings and storage, and sprucing up floors and ceilings."

 (below) "Taschen's Architecture Now! 7 features an arching overview of today's architecture, from modern to radically avant-garde. As with previous books in the series, Architecture Now! 7 includes a broad variety of projects from around the world, as well as some works of art that have a direct relation to architecture, from the likes of Giacomo Costa or Shinro Ohtake."

(below) "The 21st century has brought glamour and her sisters, decoration and ornamentation back into home design news. Glamour: Making It Modern reconsiders the homes featured in Metropolitan Home magazine through the following sections:1. Concepts: looks at the defining general notions of Modern Glamour, such as sheen and scale. 2. Objects: examines elements of home decoration which are inherently glamorous. 3. Rooms: tours homes where everything comes glamorously together. With a directory of the designers, some of the best in the business, and a list of resources for available products, Glamour: Making It Modern is purely inspirational and absolutely accessible."

Where to buy? As always, try Book Depository (free shipping worldwide!), Amazon, Booktopia...
