The first book from “AD100” designer Emily Summers, Distinctly Modern Interiors features designs that celebrate a new idea of American modernism. Weaving mid-century Continental furniture and modern art into important American homes, Summers has created a vast collection of cohesive, covetable interiors notable for their streamlined beauty. From a contemporary city penthouse to a 1940s ranch, from Summers’ Round House, to her 1960s Palm Springs getaway, the homes featured range in period and style, but all will serve as inspiration for readers looking to decorate in a Modernist tradition.
