Critique: Our book of the week ... should provide inspiration. --The Times

The Iconic Interior by Dominic Bradbury with photographs by Richard Powers surveys 100 of the 20th and 21st centuries' most celebrated dwellings. The Range is deep and broad, featuring not only sumptuous and stately standards like Coco Chanel's Paris flat and Jacques Garcia's Normandy chateau but also Dieter Ram's functionalist Frankfurt digs and John Pawson's understated London home. --Architectural Digest USA

What could easily have been a dry chronological compendium instead blossoms into an engrossing exploration of the most influential rooms from the past hundred- plus years. Both educational and inspiring, the hefty tome includes an eclectic array of spaces, ranging widely in settling, aesthetic, owner and designer. Author Dominic Bradbury deserves the credit for the spot-on curation. He penned the concise designer bios and compelling backstories for legendary and lesser-known homes alike, from the John Pawson's minimalist townhouse to Frank Lloyd Wright's monumental Hollyhock, from David Hick's elegant Grove farmhouse to Tony Duquette's exuberant folly Dawnridge. Every page contains surprises and unanticipated delights. --Veranda, USA

For those who do more than glance casually at the wonderful images - of which over half are by expert interiors photographer Richard Powers - it is packed with information in the detailed, fluent text by design writer Dominic Bradbury. It is an impressive book --House & Garden

The Iconic Interior really does... live up to its billing. Many of these homes are bona fide standard bearers for the styles they represent, whether it's Oscar Niemeyer cresting a wave of West Coast Modernism, Marcel Wanders launching himself into Futurism with his Mallorcan casa, or Coco Chanel tooting the horn for Art Deco in her Paris apartment. Many classics have been newly shot by the excellent Richard Powers. --The World of Interiors
