Author David Masello, Foreword by Margaret Russell
A tour of country estates and urban dwellings designed by Ferguson & Shamamian Architects, renowned for their classic style and attention to detail and craftsmanship, and featuring the work of such interior designers as Bunny Williams, Michael S. Smith, and Victoria Hagan.
From the moment a project is launched, the team at Ferguson & Shamamian work in close collaboration with the world’s leading decorators, landscape designers, and artisans to create contemporary houses anchored in tradition and regional character. Distinguished by their dedication to craftsmanship and creativity, the firm’s residences balance artistic integrity, historic precedent, and the latest innovations in design, but always with a sense of comfort and innate elegance that endures for generations.
The captivating stories behind these singular homes are revealed through gorgeous photography and texts narrating the genesis and evolution of each property. Working closely with their clients and teams of exceptional designers and craftspeople, Ferguson & Shamamian created these distinctive, one-of-a-kind homes that embody the personalities of their owners yet are timeless in their design. An extensive section of drawings and plans enriches the narrative and offers a glimpse inside the firm’s creative process.
