Iran-based Lena Spath recently shared with us a behind-the-scenes look into her new photo book “Behind Closed Curtains: Interior Design in Iran”. The book which was put together within an eight month period, showcases 16 of Iran’s most beautiful private homes and offers a never-before-seen look into Iranian design and architecture.
Here are some words from the author:
Iran has one of the longest urban design history dating back more than 4,000 years. Persian builders and architects were employed for the construction of Babylon and the Taj Mahal. The focus of earlier, mostly scholar books has always been on the architecture itself not the decoration, furniture or handicrafts.
This 304-page book is the first ever covering the topic of interior design in Iran. No matter if a designer is looking for inspiration or a traveler planning a trip to Iran, this book is the perfect introduction.
