About this title


Jay Spectre reveals the signature of his success as an interior designer. Functional opulence is the key to his design, which incorporates hand-carved and high-tech, and in which he attaches the same sculptural value to utility objects as to important pieces of art.

From Library Journal:

Internationally renowned designer Spectre takes us into the sleek city apartments, townhouses, magnificent mansions, and luxurious weekend hideaways he has created. Relying on excellent color photographs, he reveals the secrets of his success, explaining how and why he designed things the way he did. The results might appropriately be described as high-tech, avant-garde, Art Deco, eclectic, and contemporary. Recommended for larger libraries with a metropolitan clientele looking for that style.
