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.
