Vibrant Red

Bloomingdale's Book of Home Decorating by Barbara D'
Arcy, 1973
Contains a couple hundred amazing color and black and white photos. Barbara has an unusual writing style, including a glossary that suddenly shifts into first person:
A substitute support for the legs of a chair or table, a pedestal can be either square, rectangular, round or oval. Without a top it can serve as a support for a vase of flowers or a piece of sculpture. I like pedestals in all manner of materials. Wood, mirror, chrome, clear or white plexiglass, marble or even terra cotta, and I like to light pedestals from within when they're made of translucent plexiglass.

Available from Abe Books
