Product Description

"In the City" is the third title in the phenomenally successful "The Way We Live" series, providing a visual, in-depth view of lifestyles in cities around the world, from New York to Cairo, from London to Saigon, in five major sections. The book takes every opportunity to make cross-cultural comparisons and connections, providing a truly international view of city living, and offering a dynamic compilation of inspirational ideas.

Beyond and behind the life of the streets lie the private spaces – interiors and rooms where the tastes and aspirations of individuals are reflected in the design and arrangement of objects set among different colours, textures, materials and finishes.

Cross-cultural comparisons and connections are made throughout this wonderful book, giving a truly international view of the city experience, and creating a compilation of inspirational ideas for stylish urban living.

City Homes looks at city dwelling throughout the world.

City Spaces focuses on the details of city living: the places we devote to cooking, eating and sleeping.

City Surfaces is a study of interior decoration: colour, texture and materials.

City Detail demonstrates how even restricted spaces can be made inviting: arrangements of art and objects; ‘cabinets of curiosities’; storage space; external decoration.

City Life is an amazing photo essay of cityscapes around the world: buildings, street life, communities.

Stafford Cliff was formerly Creative Director of the Conran Design Group in London. He is the co-author and art director of the titles in the Style book series, also published by Thames & Hudson.

Gilles de Chabaneix was one of France’s most prominent photographers of design and lifestyle.
