Heirloom Modern: Homes Filled with Objects Bought, Bequeathed, Beloved, and Worth Handing Down

( 1 person added this )

Details

Proclaimed as "the New Antiquarians" in the New York Times, Hollister and Porter Hovey are proponents of an aesthetic that puts Ralph Lauren, the Royal Tennenbaums and a whole lot of taxidermy into a tarnished silver cocktail shaker and mixes it all up.

As the principles of Hovey Design, they work to integrate nostalgia, adventure and history into the home. In this book, the sisters pull back the velvet drapes on the model ships, antique book collections and vintage Vuitton trunks that fill the homes of today’s chicest 'heirloomists' and flea-market lovers.

The Hoveys venture into the apartments, cottages and townhouses of artists, architects, designers and furniture makers to showcase their seamless integration of inherited keepsakes, tag sale curiosities, collections and memorabilia and contemporary art. Inspiring in its eclecticism, this book introduces readers to a new kind of modern.
