Orlando Diaz Azcuy

di Diane Dorrans Saeks

San Francisco-based Orlando Diaz-Azcuy’s mastery of the home interior has made him one of America’s most renowned designers. One of the West Coast’s most well-respected and prolific designers, his elegantly composed rooms speak volumes for his spare, intelligent, and disciplined touch. His interiors—located in Miami and New York as well as San Francisco—combine a modernist approach of architecturally clean lines and urbane sensibility with smart flashes of bold color or a pedigreed period statement piece to balance a curated look. Regarded by professionals as a 'dean of interior design' and a pioneer of minimalist design since the early 1980s, Diaz-Azcuy has been an epic if under-recognized influence to all those interested in interior architecture and design. With insightful texts on his design methodologies and sensibility, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy stands to be one of the most important interior design monographs of the season.



'Beautiful images, a story well-written, AND a book list? What more could you ask for?'

'...required reading...such sublime and worldly interiors could only be the work of an erudite gentleman.' ~San Francisco Magazine

“Interior architect, decorator, furniture and textile designer extraordinaire, the well-traveled Diaz-Azcuy incorporates his passion into the kind of achingly beautiful rooms that fill this book.” ~Veranda
