    A new look is emerging in France's apartments as well as its imposing chateaux and country manors. Along with signature pieces of national identity - such as finely crafted wood pieces, splendid mirrors, and grandmere's well cared for linen - European mid-century modern furnishings also adorn settings in this age of merging sensibilities.

    Amid abstract works of art hanging on walls, painted furniture mingles easily with budget-friendly finds from assorted cultures such as woollen rugs and hand-embroidered linens from India, and pottery, artisan-made pillows, throws, and vintage textiles from remote markets in Morocco.

    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The first in what is a long-overdue illustrated biography of Sir Gilbert Scott, Gavin Stamp has trawled tirelessly through the archives, trying to piece together the life of this great Victorian architect.

    George Gilbert Scott was the most prolific and most famous of Victorian architects. For many, however, blinded by prejudice to the merits of Victorian architecture and the Gothic Revival, he was the most notorious. The rehabilitation of his reputation after a century of abuse is symbolised, above all, by the magnificent restoration of one of his best-known buildings (once seriously threatened with demolition), the hotel at St Pancras Station in London. He was the founder of the greatest architectural dynasty in British history, a dynasty which still flourishes in the fourth and fifth generation.

    Scott ran the largest architectural office of its time and it produced designs for some seven or eight hundred buildings (estimates vary). Only a limited selection can therefore be illustrated here, but all of his major secular works are represented, whether by old or new photographs, original drawings and prints, along with the best and most significant of his many churches.

    Lauren Liess, an interior designer and founder of the popular blog Pure Style Home, fuses her love of design and the great outdoors into all her work.

    In Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating, her first book, Lauren invites readers to bring nature inside by mixing the textures of natural elements such as wood and stone with eclectic groupings of modern and quirky vintage pieces. Readers will be inspired by the unique style of these rooms, which include lovely framed botanical prints and Liess’s own textile patterns inspired by wildflowers and thistles.

    The book is divided into three sections: Part I focuses on the fundamental elements of design, with each chapter devoted to a particular element, such as colour, lighting, and furniture; Part II addresses the intangibles of designing a space, such as aesthetics and creating a mood; and Part III tackles unique room-specific challenges in every part of the house.

    Journeying through time and place, from the ancient Egyptian pyramids to the soaring skyscrapers of Manhattan, renowned architectural historian Dan Cruickshank explores the most impressive and characterful creations in world architecture.

    Dan Cruickshank has visited nearly all the buildings in the book, many in locations that are now inaccessible and under serious threat. A History of Architecture in 100 Buildings is an eloquent and often moving testimony to the power of great architecture to shape, and be shaped by, world history.

    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    One's house tends to be the most valuable asset, not only economically but also psychologically. It is a haven for our safety, protection and welfare, while also being a physical manifestation of our creativity, personality and character. With so many factors to bear in mind and options to choose from, it should come as no surprise that some people may hesitate when deciding how their house should be built. To help solve this uncertainty, this book aims to be a portfolio of ideas that showcases houses from all over the world, designed by contemporary, international architects and interior designers. Each project uses specific materials or concepts that stand out from the rest of its design.

    Throughout this book, we feature houses made of concrete, stone, brick, metal, wood and lightweight or recycled materials, which have become the hallmark of the project. Sometimes this choice of material was based on the geographic region and climate: wood plus insulation are used more often in colder climates, while tile, concrete and stone are more commonly used in warmer climates. Furthermore, the illustrations are accompanied by practical interior design tips that will help readers create their own style and personality.

    Advances in architecture mean houses in a contemporary style with endless possibilities in terms of their interior and exterior design. These more than 50 homes, residences and houses show a wide array of interior designs and exterior constructions with materials, textures and colours that offer outstanding ideas on how to use and combine these elements. The end result is residential spaces brimming with originality and character.
