Defining Chic: Carrier and Company Interiors

One of today’s most celebrated and influential design firms creates eclectic, inspired, and quietly virtuosic interiors across the style spectrum—from bohemian glamour to country charm, sophisticated modern, and historically informed—for clients as individual in taste as Anna Wintour and Jessica Chastain.

Here the Carriers showcase homes that express their clients’ personalities and dreams, through the practical filters of lifestyle and place—and reveal the design principles behind them. Their range spans a historic, art-filled New York duplex, replete with period vestiges, to an updated Mediterranean-style Southern California house with an art deco–era core, and a refreshed Connecticut lakeside retreat with glass expanses that capture the views. Discrete touches throughout lift the overall effect. For example, a cashmere-covered sofa transforms a library into a space not only for reading but also for contemplation while vibrant, orange leather lining turns kitchen cabinets from a necessity into an incredible luxury. This stunning book will appeal to design fans interested in chic, livable spaces.
