Hundreds of photographs have been drawn from stylish residences around the world, particularly from places where easy modern living has achieved its best expression, such as Brazil, California, Scandinavia and Australia, but also from places where streamlined forms have been fused with vernacular styles. From desert to jungle, from city to country, 'modern' has a wide spectrum.

With clean, elegant design and thematic structure, together with a comprehensive index of designers and architects, and directory of stockists, this book offers anyone looking to create their own stylish and contemporary interior a complete source of inspiration.

Richard Powers' previous books include Tropical Minimal and The Iconic House, both published by Thames & Hudson.
