Synopsis: Western design has evolved from the limitations of log-style architecture, simple and rough-hewn lodgepole pine furnishings, brightly colored leather, and Chimayo weavings to stately interiors that are graceful, elegant, and highly polished, incorporating upscale fabrics and ornamentation
From the Inside Flap: New Western Design: High-Style Architecture & Interiors New Western Design: High-Style Architecture & Interiors explores how modern western artisans are reinterpreting western style. Today's craftspeople are redefining traditional western design, often easily recognized as log-pole furnishings, brightly colored leather, and Chimayo weavings, into a more polished, sophisticated, and contemporary-looking genre. This new high style is marked by stately interior and exterior spaces that are graceful, elegant, and chic-with a touch of urban flair. Providing insight into the work of the great western artisans of the past who paved the way for today's western craftspeople who are creating this fresh, fashionable rustic style, this book surveys homes that are on the cutting edge of high-style western design. Specific rooms are considered, including kitchens, bathrooms, libraries, and offices, as well as specific custom pieces, such as desks, lighting fixtures, cabinetry, and accessories. Ablaze with fresh perspective and at times delightful humor, the work of this new generation of western artists frequently incorporates seemingly discordant elements-recycled components; luxurious, upscale fabrics; precious gems-with the beautiful woods that grace the West. Intended as a guide to new approaches to western design as well as a means to spark design ideas for your own home, New Western Design is for those forward-thinking dreamers who love the romanticism and mystique of the West but who also crave a measure of contemporary panache. back flap A native of Kinnear, Wyoming, Thea Marx is a former executive director of the Western Design Conference.
