Fusion Interiors

Well, beyond the bland title, the book, Fusion Interiors, is really cool. It's a look at photographs of things that inspire the textile designs for Andrew Martin, by Martin Waller. He says in the preface, "For me design has been about reflecting different cultures and communicating a passion for the peoples that made them. While many designers want to say something new, I want to say something old - to capture a flavour of an antique land and somehow bottle it. It's a homage to the many generations from different lands who have bequeathed a legacy of design." Not only are the photographs inspiring, but the way that he interprets the many and varied "ethnic" designs is just wonderful. Nothing looks too much like you are decorating with a trip that you took once. It is interpreted.
