Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman delight in the unexpected. They revel in beautiful contradictions to create interiors that blend the exotic and the traditional and refresh classic ideas with handmade, whimsical details. Both designers contribute an essential element to every project: Andrew Fisher injects opulence and glamour, hand-decorating chandeliers with shells, crafting side tables with delicate branchlike bases, and choosing ornate accent materials like tortoise, gold leaf, and peacock feathers; Jeffry Weisman contributes restrained architecture, calm visual pauses, and impeccable interior finishes.

 

As a firm, Fisher Weisman breathes new life into traditional aesthetics, reinterpreting timeless sensibilities with a lively and contemporary eye. Whether recovering Biedermeier chairs in zebra hide and slipper chairs with repurposed Indian saris found on their travels or finishing formal dining rooms in rich chocolate lacquer, Fisher Weisman subverts expectations to create truly extraordinary interiors. Artful Decoration showcases the exquisite work of this San Francisco–based design firm, revealing the imagination, meticulous attention to detail, and the sense of humor with which they infuse every home.

 

Beguiling touches finish off rooms designed with an enviable knowledge of form, proportion, color, and history to bring traditional spaces into the present and create livable, fresh interiors with an artisanal flair. Artful Decoration features thirteen residences ranging from small but lavish pieds-à-terre to airy Californian estates, from elegant penthouses to one especially elaborate tree house. Two hundred vivid, full-color illustrations reveal these and many other unexpected pleasures on every page to delight the eye and inspire the imagination.
