The Finest Rooms in America presents 50 of the country’s most beautiful rooms as chosen by interior designer Thomas Jayne in consultation with some of the leading tastemakers and authorities on style today. Starting with Mount Vernon and Monticello, the book continues with rooms from the 18th and 19th centuries and then surveys an eclectic mix of both public and private rooms from the 20th and 21st centuries. Prominent designers featured include Henri Samuel, Albert Hadley, Rose Tarlow, Bunny Williams, and Mario Buatta. Jayne's erudite and engaging text places each room in context, identifying the elements that contribute to its success and demonstrating how style evolves and endures over time.
