Schumacher has been at the forefront of design in the US for well over 100 years. Founded in 1889, the house quickly became the go-to for style setters such as Edith Wharton and designer Elsie de Wolfe, and Schumacher's ongoing collaborations with leading designers and artists have turned the company into one of the most important and influential design houses of today.
Now, their first book, The Schumacher Guide to Elevating Your Style, features the house's greatest contemporary designs – everything from classic stripes and exuberant florals to edgy animal prints – and shows how they can be used to create beautiful, elegant rooms.
Organised thematically by style, with chapters such as, "Boho"; "Happy Modern"; "Earthy"; "Romantic"; "Extrovert"; and "High Style" the book explores a variety of patterns and palettes, with guidance and suggestions for deciding what style is best for you and your interior.
The book is chock full of lavish imagery of patterns, alongside stunning interiors by many of the top designers working today – such as Miles Redd, Mary McDonald, Timothy Corrigan, Celerie Kemble, Veere Grenney and Mark Sykes, to name a few – illustrating how Schumacher's iconic patterns can be integrated into a wide range of chic and stylish room designs. Interviews with the designers themselves provide insights and tips on how to use pattern in your décor.
Full of inspiring design ideas, as well as an unparalleled resource of prints and patterns, The Schumacher Guide to Elevating Your Style is a visual feast of interior design for all styles and tastes.
