Orla Kiely Home Hardback
by Orla Kiely
"Orla Kiely is a virtuoso of vintage pattern and design." - The Sunday Business Post "Whether you're a fan of Orla Kiely's cult retro patterns or not, it's hard to resist her second book." - Real Homes Internationally renowned designer Orla Kiely describes her career as 'a journey in pattern and colour'.
Her distinctive palette, and graphic and stylized motifs in clean repeat constructions, have won her devoted fans across the world, and have helped to turn, what began as a small British business designing bags, into a global fashion, accessories and homeware brand.
Following the success of her first book Pattern, Home opens the door on Orla's own house, looks at a series of British, Irish and Scandinavian case studies - all beautifully photographed by Richard Powers - reveals the mid-century modern items that have inspired her work and tracks the creation of her homeware range including furniture, textiles, wallpaper and ceramics. 'I have always been inspired by architecture and interiors so the move into furniture and homewares was completely natural,' Orla says. 'To me, the home is where we can truly express our style and personality, where we can be playful.'Contents Includes...Elements My Work My House Case Studies Siegel House Scheer House Villa Bendvold Bygdoy House Brabrand House Aarhus ...And Many More!
