Thanks to our friends at Gestalten Publishers, we’re giving away three copies of ‘The Chamber of Curiosity: Apartment Design and the New Elegance’.

 

 

The publishers say “The most fascinating apartments are always those that reflect the essence of their occupants. ‘The Chamber of Curiosity’ is a captivating selection of interiors from around the world that tell compelling stories of their owner’s unconventional personalities and life paths.

Each page transports the reader into eccentric, deeply personal, and consistently fascinating spaces. We are welcomed into the private worlds of exotics, dandies, and hedonists featuring stunning work by architects and designers as well as objects collected by savvy hunters and gatherers. In the collage-like rooms showcased in this book, anything goes except uniformity. Its rich images are complemented by portraits of trailblazing interior designers and additional texts about the featured owners and their furnishings.”
