How to Live with Objects
A modern guide to personalizing your home with meaningful objects, from contemporary design collectibles to travel souvenirs, with advice on how to acquire and style them, by the founders of the trendsetting magazine Sight Unseen.
In the modern home, it matters less whether your interior is perfectly appointed, and more whether it's personal, comfortable, and filled with the objects you love. Through inspiring home tours and practical advice on how and what to collect, Monica Khemsurov and Jill Singer take you on an educational and highly visual journey through the questions at the core of their design philosophy:
What makes an object worth having?
Why should we collect objects, and how do they impact our lives?
How to Live with Objects guides collectors, design lovers, and novices alike towards a more sophisticated and skilled mindset in acquiring and living with objects. Khemsurov and Singer offer a detailed primer on how to maximize the thoughtfulness of your space, regardless of your size limitations or style preferences. From a deep dive into the world of vintage-hunting, to object stories from creatives like Misha Kahn and Lykke Li, to expert styling tips and tricks, How to Live with Objects is an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to make their house a home.
