Sir Edwin Lutyens: Designing in the English Tradition

Sir Edwin Lutyens: Designing in the English Tradition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A reissue of a superbly illustrated book tracing Sir Edwin Lutyens's formidable achievements of both grand public buildings and his many beautiful country houses

Through his architecture of New Delhi, Lutyens had the unofficial status of Britain's "architect laureate," but it is in his wonderful country houses that his creative genius can most fully be appreciated. Elizabeth Wilhide traces the development of the Lutyens style and illustrates his remarkable blend of function and artistry, from the imposing granite of Castle Drogo and Lindisfarne to the restful appeal of Munstead Wood, which he designed for his long-term collaborator and friend, Gertrude Jekyll. Wilhide also devotes a large section of the book to Lutyens's wonderful interiors. With commissioned photographs showing interiors and gardens, as well as original designs for furniture, this elegant monograph provides a fresh insight into a rich and enduring heritage of design.

Synopsis:

This is the first book to feature the furniture and interior design of this hugely successful British designer (1869-1944), best known for his architecture and collaboration with Gertrude Jekyll in garden design. The specially commissioned photographs offer a wealth of ideas for reinterpreting Lutyens's (pronounced LUTCH-ens) style in today's homes.
