Amalfi CoastRegular price $195.00 Save $-195.00
The Amalfi Coast is the pinnacle of the Italian dream. Tucked amongst the lemon blossoms and the bougainvillea is a line of thirteen towns that comprise the Amalfi Coast. Known for its vertical landscape, the villages are only accessible via the Strada Statale 163 - a narrow, winding, cliffside route that while unsettling to traverse, offers unparalleled views. This magical strip joins the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea below and aesthetes from around the world flock here year after year to enjoy its quaint pebbled beaches, scenic hikes, perfect climate and legendary establishments, which are not limited to storied hotels and restaurants. Landmarks from the Cathedral in Amalfi to Villa Rufolo in Ravello, all evoke the culture and the spirit of bygone centuries, and landmarks enjoyed by the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, John Steinbeck, and Gore Vidal abound. With its signature limoncello, both grown and enjoyed locally, finest villas and breathtaking vistas, the Amalfi Coast is in a class of its own.

Wood and Iron | Industrial InteriorsRegular price $59.99 Save $-59.99
Industrial style has become one of the most influential interior design trends of recent years.
Following the second industrial revolution, strong developments in industry resulted in a change in the concept of furniture design in the same way as it transformed society.
Its nostalgic aesthetic and the sincerity and crudeness of its materials and functionality made it popular in working class neighbourhoods in the United States, giving birth to the loft living concept.
The advent of new materials and the possibilities for bulk manufacturing gave rise to pieces that have today become icons of modern design.
This book is intended as a source of inspiration and guidance for those making their foray into the world of industrial style, presenting the most influential names in the genre, anonymous pieces salvaged from junk shops and carefully selected interior design projects.

Relaxed RusticRegular price $49.99 Save $-49.99
Relaxed rustic interiors are about embracing the pared-back lifestyle of living in the country, taking nature as the main point of inspiration.
Use colours, textures and details to create a home in which to unwind – a retreat from the rest of the world. Niki Brantmark explores various takes on this simple, informal style. The graphical look is striking, reminiscent of exposed landscapes: think whitewashed ceilings, rugged stone surfaces and striking black features, softened by cosy soft furnishings and fresh plants and flowers.
Savanna style introduces warmer hues, featuring painted wood and reds, oranges and browns in textiles, furniture and collectibles. Nordic interiors take in the best of the Scandinavian landscape – clean white backdrops against sleek designs – while those inspired by forest and mountain streams are filled with rich, deep greens and blues, combined with traditional patterns and features, such as log burners, wood panelling and woven rugs.
The stunning photography for this book takes in locations across Scandinavia and the United States, and all evoke an ideal, rural life, adapted to modern living.
