The first book from a rising star of the interior design world, whose signature style has earned him celebrity clientele, coveted design collaborations, and a place on the AD100 list.
In just a few years, the pioneering young British designer Jake Arnold has become one of the most influential names in American interiors, creating modern spaces that transcend time and trends.
Integrating the traditions of his English upbringing and the relaxed luxury of contemporary California lifestyle, Arnold’s sensibility is a warm minimalism that is simultaneously chic and serene.
With Redefining Comfort, his first book, Jake Arnold shares nine fully realized projects—from sprawling estates in California to seaside homes in Florida—whose interiors reflect the seductive combination of elegance, tactility, and pleasure.
Unique in his determination to lift the curtain on the designer’s process, Arnold ties each project to a key value of his design philosophy—touchpoints that aim to answer the question of how we define comfort in each of these homes—which he explores in depth between each chapter. With sketches, material swatches, and favorite resources alongside stunning photography of the interiors themselves, the book is a sumptuous survey of one of the most in-demand superstar designers working today and a refreshingly accessible reference for contemporary interior inspiration.
