Description

The influence of traditional Asian design has always been far-reaching, often found in the most modern and streamlined homes, hotels, spas, and gardens in both the West and the East. Today, contemporary Asian architects and interior designers have developed a new kind of modernism that references the appropriate elements of their own traditions. The New East is the first comprehensive volume to present this ongoing style revolution and is sure to inspire anyone looking to add harmony and sensuality to their homes.Photographs by Michael Freeman showcase Asian designs for living. Here you'll find everything you need to know about bringing the Eastern flavor to your home - combining Western design motifs with traditional Eastern elements, such as the Japanese sliding screens; creating harmonious balance between indoor and outdoor space, for example by adding open walkways often found in Thai houses; selecting specific materials that make up the traditional design form in Asia, such as bamboo and stone; and adapting the Asian design philosophy of reducing a space to its core essentials for a natural and simple minimalist look with a sense of serenity and tranquility. The New East is a unique source of information and inspiration for all those concerned with the art of stylish modern living.
