Add these three new design books to your pile of beach reads for some decoration inspiration.
“Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century”
Your inner voyeur will love this hefty volume, which showcases lavish, edgy and otherwise notable spaces from around the globe. It took Billy Norwich — formerly of The Post, as well as Vogue and the New York Times — 39 months to curate the selection, winnowing his initial brainstorm list of 900 rooms down to the 415 published.
Some of the homes featured are owned by boldface names — Coco Chanel, Gianni Versace, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe — while others are standouts due to their visual appeal.
In the latter camp is the home of Baron Roger de Cabrol, a Paris-educated interior designer who started out as an assistant to Salvador Dalí (whose home is also in the book).
One highlight of his East Village loft, completed in 2014, is the pair of stiletto-shaped chairs — of his own creation — set against exposed brick and ceiling beams.
Out of respect to design buffs, the book is available in four hues: yellow, red, gray and midnight blue. Surely one of them will match your color scheme?
“Herman Miller: A Way of Living”
Listen up, lovers of midcentury modern furniture! The 114-year history of Herman Miller — the iconic dealer of such coveted items as Eames loungers and ottomans, Noguchi coffee tables, and the Aeron office chair on wheels from Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick — is detailed in a new tome. Archivists dug up never-before-published photos, ads, sketches and more in a fitting tribute to the storied company.
Skogluft (aka Forest Air)

Hygge is a philosophy of coziness from Denmark. Marie Kondo brought us her joy-sparking decluttering method, KonMari, from Japan. And now, Jorn Viumdal debuts a plant wall-centric Norwegian technique — skogluft — that promises to bring, as the book’s subtitle says, “natural air and light into your home and office to dramatically improve health and happiness.”
