More is More is More: Today's Maximalist Interiors

A vibrant new collection of the best maximalist interiors from today’s top designers.

Rooms of jewellike color and glorious pattern. Enchanting lacquered ceilings and geometric floors. Brilliantly massed collections of furniture, objects, and art. Although maximalism has always had a place in interior design—practiced by noted decorators such as Dorothy Draper, Sister Parish, and Mario Buatta—today it is bigger than ever. Thanks to its contemporary practitioners, rooms rich with color, pattern, and everything else have exploded onto the design scene in recent years. More Is More Is More celebrates the best of this work with page after page of lushly photographed vivid inspiration and ideas.
Each of the five chapters in More Is More Is More begins with an essay on a theme—color, pattern, surfaces, elements, and layering—followed by dozens of showstopping rooms from acclaimed, award-winning designers, including Ken Fulk, Steven Gambrel, Kelly Behun, Mark D. Sikes, Pierce and Ward, Bunny Williams, Corey Damen Jenkins, and Redd Kaihoi. The images are enhanced by commentary from the designers describing their process for creating the room and offering insight on how to incorporate the ideas at home.
With a design as lavishly maximalist as its subject, More Is More Is More is a perfect gift for design fans.
