Book by Webb Michael


"The Boyd Collection is one of the most comprehensive and important 20th century modernist furniture collections in private hands today. Although the individual pieces are museum-worthy, the Boyds have committed to living with the entire collection, inspired by the revolutionary spirit of modernism and its credo that good design can engender beautiful living. The collection is dazzlingly displayed in a mid-century California masterpiece designed by Brazilian modern Oscar Niemeyer, his only North American residential design." "Rosewood" "The Modernist paradise in question is the Boyd Collection, a mother lode of twentieth-century furniture housed in Oscar Niemeyer's only North American residence... The book is a lush, glossy tribute to the museum-quality collection, which also includes historic paintings, posters, books, and household accessories." "Metropolis" "The word "collector" takes on new meaning with Michael and Gabrielle Boyd. Together, the two have amassed thousands of pieces of 20th-century furniture, objects and abstract art. In "Modernist Paradise" (Rizzoli), the two take on the ultimate project: restoring Brazilian architect Oscar Niermeyer's only American house and grounds to their original design. Photographed by Tim Street-Porter and written by Michael Webb, the book provides the ultimate fix for any 20th-century furniture fetishist." "Riviera" "This attractive book tells a rich story... Tim Street-Porter's photographs capture modern milestones by Marcel Breuer, Josef Hoffman, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Jule, Adolf Loos, George Nelson, Jean Prouve, Gerrit Rietveld, and Otto Wagner as well as Niemeyer himself..." "Interior Design"
