For those who were inspired by Justina Blakeney’s 'The New Bohemians' and travelled with TASCHEN through the world’s best homes, here comes something unseen: beautifully designed houses in Iran. Peek inside the homes of artists, entrepreneurs, and architects in a barely known and mysterious country.
Have you always wondered how Iranians live? With vibrant pictures, 'Behind Closed Curtains' opens the doors to sixteen homes all over the country and shows what makes Iranian design and architecture so special. Along the line, readers will get to know the country, people, and stories behind the often closed curtains.
This book is the first ever covering the topic of interior design in Iran. No matter if you are a designer looking for inspiration or planning a trip to Iran, this book is the perfect introduction and for the 5 million expat Iranians, this is some nostalgia.
This book is the result of amazing Lena Späth with her brilliant vision. as the title says itself -behind closed curtains- she successfully managed to gather a collection of Iranian Traditional taste of interior design coming together in a modern concept, including the very details and professional use of materials which normally you may not see much ,out in the public or social media ,as a result of the conservative culture of Iran. I recommend it to anyone interested in seeing more and knowing more.
What a beautiful book! The photography is stunning and a great insight into how fascinating daily life is in Iran. I loved every page of the book and it gave me so many simple ideas for decorating my apartment.
It's also the perfect coffee table book and have had many friends pick it up with interest when they visit. Would highly recommend to anyone with a interest with interiors, Iran or beautiful photography.
