One of the great, unique, interior design books of the 1980s!
Edited by Prince Egon von Fürstenberg, a prominent German socialite, banker, fashion designer, and interior designer (and at one time married to fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg), this one-of-a-kind book dawns the 1980s with an incredible collection of interiors that express a man’s “style, taste, and most importantly, sense of self”, from the perspective of the modern male. “This beautifully illustrated book (…) shows you the Power Looks that convey success, confidence, imagination, creativity, and effectiveness”. “With outstanding photographs of his friends’ apartments, Egon von Fürstenberg reveals how Marvin Hamlisch, Perry Ellis, Angelo Donghia, Georgio Sant’Angelo, and many other successful singles reflect their personalities in the way they live.” It even includes decorating budgets!
A perfect interior design book to sum up the eclectic Hi-Tech, Pop, Minimal, and Cosmopolitan lofts, studios and apartments of the late 1970’s/early 1980’s, featuring some of the finest examples of prominent interior decorators of the period.
