Textbook Tuesday's | Life at the Top

The latest addition to my design library is close to my heart. I adore New York City - and I think of my travels there often & wish to return again one day. Vendome Press has released an amazing look into the finest apartments in this special City rich with history and culture. In Life at the Top: New York's Most Exceptional Apartment Buildings, authors Kirk Henckels and Anne Walker and photographer Michel Arnaud give us an insider glimpse into coveted and iconic addresses such as the Dakota, 820 Fifth Avenue, and 740 Park Avenue just to name a few.

Better yet, the interiors in this 320 page oversized coffee table book feature the design work of some of my favorite all-stars including Robert Couturier, Bunny Williams, Tom Scheerer, Michael S. Smith, Katie Ridder, Markham Roberts, Albert Hadley, among others.

I love that this book includes exterior details as well as interiors, just look at the sight lines and that view below! We also get the chance to see photographs of some of the chic and famous New Yorker's who inhabited these homes; everyone from the likes of Cecil Beaton, C.Z. Guest, and Brooke Astor are featured.

The book is divided into 15 chapters, each takes us through the features of one of 15 incredible apartment houses - so you get an in depth history complete with vintage photographs, and architectural floor plans, I just love historic stuff like this!

What a great gift for the Holiday's, for your design savvy New-York-loving friend or simply for your own collection! To see more on Life at the Top, hop over here.
