Description

$21.95 hardcover * 1-58685-032-6 * March< BR>8-1/2 x 8-1/2 in, 96 pp, 135 Color Photographs,< BR>Rights: W, Design< BR>In their sixth book, Mexican Details, designers Karen Witynski and Joe P. Carr travel through Mexico and the Southwest in celebration of the character-rich details of Mexican furniture, architectural elements, and handcrafted accents that resonate with beauty and originality.< BR>From chip-carved benches and hand-hewn tortilla tables to painted trunks and carved-stone moldings, the soulful nature of Mexican design abounds. Decorative accents include intricately woven textiles, glazed ceramics, wooden masks, and folk art objects that bear evidence of the hands that crafted them.< BR>Carr and Witynski reveal in vibrant detail how mesquite doors can be newly fashioned into console and coffee tables, iron window grilles are converted to headboards, and stone water filters blossom as flower planters. These once-utilitarian elements take on creative new roles in modern-day homes, adding beauty and character to every corner. Featuring brilliant close-up photographs by Witynski, Mexican Details is alive with creative and fresh Mexican elements.< BR>show more
