Book Overview
Innovatively combining period and contemporary furniture and art in a sophisticated mix, the homes of Isabel Lopez-Quesada are inspirational and unforgettable. In At Home , the Spanish designer tells her own story. Lopez-Quesada introduces her family and their traditions, and reveals her sources of inspiration--such as the work of earlier designers like Renzo Mongiardino and John Stefanidis. She relates how she transformed an abandoned wax factory in a leafy district of Madrid into her family home and atelier, and then recounts how she created a country home out of a run-down Basque farm in the hills outside of Biarritz, France. Both the Madrid and Biarritz properties have been affectionately documented by Miguel Flores-Vianna, who has photographed interiors, patios, and gardens, as well as Lopez-Quesada's design studios.
