    Author: HOFFMANN DONALD
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: NOVEMBER 2017 NEW RELEASE

    Organic form was Frank Lloyd Wright's credo, and its most splendid embodiment is Fallingwater, designed and built for the Pittsburgh merchant Edgar Kaufmann in the 1930s. The private dwelling, which juts directly over a waterfall at Bear Run in western Pennsylvania, is the boldest and most personal architectural statement of Wright's mature years.

    This volume is a total revision - both in text and illustrations - of the standard document of Fallingwater. With the opening of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, valuable new material has come to light that has provided the basis for this completely rewritten and expanded account. The new material has enabled the author, Wright expert Donald Hoffmann, to tell a more comprehensive, vivid, and authentic story. This book is the complete record of the birth, growth, and maturity of an architectural masterpiece. It documents in special detail Fallingwater's architectural innovations: its cantilevered construction, its ingenious integration with a majestic waterfall, the cascading staircases, organic use of ornament, and the problematic but ultimately triumphant use of reinforced concrete.

    France is the world's style destination, and photographer Sebastien Siraudeau has scoured the country to uncover eighty of its most charming boutique guest houses, each rich in the design details that epitomize French style. Thirty of these locations are featured in individual chapters with photographs highlighting their particular flair from a trompe loeil wall mural, to a damask upholstered chaise longue, or a simple row of ocean-polished stones. Those seeking inspiration for their own home will find this book rich in ideas for a wide variety of styles. Elegant crystal chandeliers may take center stage in one room, but a simple wooden bench, worn smooth with centuries of use, can be just as captivating in another. Gently faded neutrals create a quiet harmony in one setting, while another is alive with splashes of vivid color. Sleek and modern or cozy and rustic, each of these hand-picked settings is as inviting as a deep leather armchair. Organized thematically, these enticing destinations will inspire the reader to recreate the same atmospheric interiors at home. This handsome volume includes a black book of the best design destinations the country has to offer from chateaux, country manors, and farmhouses, to urban apartments, hotels, and B&Bs. A practical guide grouped by region includes price indicators and online tourist information.
