Custom Fitted By Campion Platt
I bought the book because Campion is handsome. Did I say that out loud? Actually, I bought the book because I am a huge fan of Campion Platt. You see, before blogging, design enthusiasts would wait feverishly for their favorite glossy to show up in the mail every month and then page by page, devour the content. Reading every line and taking meticulous notes. Only if it was truly remarkable would we tear the page out and add it to an inspiration board. Even then, if you were a collector, you'd buy a replacement copy of the issue so that you'd have a perfect copy. Campion Platt was a staple in Architectural Digest and so the love affair started from a distance. Over the years, I started to expect to see his projects and was always impressed with his latest endeavor. Fast forward to the book. How wonderful it is to take this visual journey with him! He narrates the projects in way that makes you feel that you were actually there during the process. Made to Order is also cool in that it goes behind the scenes of custom-made furnishings. Due to the size of some of my clients, I have had to have many of the pieces for their homes custom-made. There's a name for that...Bespoke. And Bespoke is what Campion does extremely well. With numerous partnership and licensing deals, we can expect to see more of these custom-made products available for mass markets. I'd love to hear from you about the book. How does Made to Order fit you?
