Extraordinary Interiors (Hardcover)
Over the course of her illustrious career, designer Suzanne Tucker has perfected a unique approach to creating elegant, sumptuously appointed residences eminently suited to their owners and their architectural and geographic context. Tucker describes her process as part anthropology, part archaeology, part psychology: she uncovers her clients’ dreams and desires for their home, and the nuances of their lifestyle, and applies her vast knowledge of decorative arts and antiques to compose splendid spaces perfectly tailored for each life.
Extraordinary Interiors, Tucker’s third monograph, presents a selection of the designer’s recent work, including a mountain retreat featuring a symphony of natural tones and textures; a Bay Area pied-à-terre exhibiting international flair; a Manhattan apartment whose muted hues showcase an exceptional art collection; a beach house that marries high sophistication with leisurely living; a magnificent San Francisco townhouse whose intarsia floors, coffered ceilings, and natatorium are inspired by historic Italian palazzos; and Tucker’s own oasis-like home in Montecito, California.
Across the varied styles and locations of these remarkable residences, Extraordinary Interiors heralds Tucker’s passion for architecture and the decorative arts, and consummate skill for creating timeless, luxurious, exquisitely detailed, and art- and antique-filled rooms.
Tucker believes that by surrounding ourselves with what is beautiful, we enrich and enhance the quality of our lives. With that in mind, she has launched an extraordinary array of beautiful home furnishings, including exquisite fabrics sold in showrooms across the world, dinnerware for Royal Limoges, outdoor furniture and textiles for Michael Taylor Designs, mantelpieces for Chesney’s, and bed linens for Julia B.
