Overview

James Magni’s highly sophisticated, modern home design is highly sought after the world over and showcased here for the first time. Magni Modernism displays the designer’s sensibilities through 14 private residences found in such diverse locales as Beverly Hills, Mexico City, Jackson Hole, Aspen, and Moscow. With elegant restraint, Magni’s interiors complement the architecture of these magnificent homes, reflecting his training as an architect and spotlighting the buildings’ dramatic lines, open spaces, and spectacular views. From the limestone walls of a penthouse in Mexico City to the dark wood and concrete of a home in the mountains of Jackson Hole, each residence is beautifully captured in photographs and accompanied by an insightful and engaging text by design writer Marc Kristal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Magni specializes in modern residential interiors. This volume, which includes more than 200 color photographs, showcases 14 projects, most of which are located in Beverly Hills and the affluent coastal communities of Orange County, CA, that he has designed over the past 20 years. Architectural writer Kristal chronicles Magni's approach to each project and explains how the designs were developed to reflect clients' tastes and lifestyles. The work also explores how Magni worked to adapt both newly constructed and remodeled dwellings incorporating period and ethnic furnishings and items from his own line, Magni Home Collection. VERDICT Professional designers and those interested in sophisticated, modern interior design will be inspired by Magni's work.
