Making House: Designers at Home

This book celebrates inventive and inspired homes that are at once original and the product of visionary designers at the height of their powers.
Making House features the houses and apartments of leading interior, furniture, and product designers—homes by designers, as designed for themselves—including the abodes of well-known figures such as Jonathan Adler, Marc Newson, Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci of Dimore Studio, and Stephen Sills.
A great degree of inspiration is to be found among the personal homes and interiors of the masters. Designers, architects, and artists are free to experiment in a way that is unique, without any of the traditional limitations of a client-commissioned project. These are laboratories of invention. They are also private retreats, which offer a range of design solutions for common challenges from which the reader may glean new ideas and the motivation to make such ideas real.
Beautifully illustrated, this volume is at once a document and a celebration of some of the most inspiring homes from around the world and the creative minds and personalities behind them, photographed specifically for this book.

"A solution from the Rhinebeck, New York, home of architect and designer couple Zack McKown and Calvin Tsao is featured in the new book Making House: Designers at Home (Rizzoli)."

"Making House: Designers at Home is the latest from frequent collaborators Dominic Bradbury and Richard Powers. Smaller than your average coffee table tome, the book gives readers a glimpse into what could easily be called some of the world’s most beautiful homes."

"As the story of each designers’ home unfolded, I found myself captivated and inspiring. I jotted down design ideas and took to heart the words written by this group of amazing designers."
