Contemporary Thai by Wongvipa Devahastin na Ayudhya
Photographs by Luca Invernizzi Tettoni
Style - Interiors - Decorating Ideas
Thailand offers a rich spectrum of decorating choices for the international home owner. Methods and materials once reserved for royalty such as gold-leaf stencilling, lacquerware, and the finest silks and celadons are adapted to create modern homewares of extraordinary beauty and versatility. A carved and gilded alter table inspires a clean-lined side console; a handwoven silk ceremonial cloth becomes a vibrant table runner; old Buddhist manuscript cabinets are recycled as elegant television cupboards. Rustic elements such as earthen-ware, bamboo and rattan, cotton and hemp are transformed into sophisticated tableware, lighting features, and soft furnishings. Photographed in Thai settings as diverse as a converted rice barn, a five-star spa, a garden sala and a palatial penthouse, these pieces will be equally at home in New York, Tokyo and London.
Photographed in full colour, this coffee table book is an ideal gift from Thailand for any occasion.
