Who wants to be a famous designer? It doesn't hurt that fine furniture maker and author (Classical Furniture  and Extraordinary Furniture )^B David Linley was born to royalty or that his father, Lord Snowden, is a very accomplished photographer. Nonetheless, Linley has produced a mouthwatering, narrated gallery of home interiors, with rooms of the famed (Sir Elton John and Bill Blass, among others) juxtaposed with those not well-known. Far from the pattern-on-pattern style popularized by Mario Buatta, Linley focuses on simplicity--drama even--as we stroll through the ways that people arrive, live, dine, cook, read, rest, work, and bathe. A few pages of history mixed with personal reminiscences follow with close-ups of details: the family rocking horse, brass hardware, and an assortment of rasps. Finally, his perspectives are fresh, such as his comments that entrance halls were made to showcase "visually exciting but impractical furniture." Bibliography appended. Barbara Jacobs
