City of Dreams: Los Angeles Interiors Inspiring Homes of Architects, Designers, and Artists

$ 65.00

The longtime Angeleno and celebrated photographer Tim Street-Porter offers this sweeping survey of the best of both historic and contemporary Los Angeles houses that have tremendous resonance for interior design today.
Los Angeles’s Street-Porter has been chronicling this metropolis’s architecture and interiors for over twenty-five years. This stunning collection of inspiring homes begins with a look back, which includes examples of iconic houses inspired by Hollywood film fantasies, Modernist residences by such luminaries as John Lautner, and Frank Gehry’s Deconstructivism-style home. The heart of the book features today’s forward-looking homes, divided into two sections: Living with Art and Design and Los Angeles Modern. Antiquarian Joel Chen artfully blends an eye-catching collection of period furniture and Chinese objets while interior designer Jean-Louis Denoit’s house sparkles with a Tony Duquette gilded mirror and an abalone shell chandelier. Another trend is the renovation of modernist houses with a personal touch. Artist Mary Weatherford’s reworking of her A. Quincy Jones–designed home, in collaboration with designer Oliver Furth, has a striking orange bedroom. Illuminating Los Angeles’s dramatic indoor-outdoor living spaces, this tome is a must-have for architecture and design enthusiasts.
