The design and décor of the Adirondacks are forever linked to our modern idea of vacation living and outdoor relaxation. But they are also home to a rich interior design style focused on handcrafted furniture and rustic accessories.
cabins to great camps and everything in between, rustic expert Ralph Kylloe leads a personal tour of fifteen Adirondack homes, including boathouses, riverside cabins, and grand historical great camps such as Top Ridge. He also explores a variety of interpretations of the Adirondack style--from traditional to contemporary--and includes a detailed resource section that facilitates re-creating the Adirondack look in any region of the country.
Ralph Kylloe is the foremost authority on rustic furniture and owner of the Ralph Kylloe Gallery at Lake George in New York's Adirondack Mountains. He is the author of thirteen previous books, including Cabins and Camps, Rustic Artistry for the Home, The Rustic Cabin, Rustic Traditions, Rustic Furniture Makers, and Fly Fishing the Great Western Rivers.
Ralph Kylloe explores the classic style and detailing of Adirondack home design from both a historic and contemporary perspective. He shows us traditional style as well as contemporary interpretations of home design and décor in the style that made "great camps" an icon of vacation living and outdoor relaxation.
Through personal tours of a ten Adirondack-style homes, from boat houses overhanging the lake, to riverside cabins, camps in the pines, and even the grandest of historic great camps-Top Ridge, Kylloe gives a sound if abbreviated history of New York's Adirondacks. From prehistory through the advent of wilderness recreation and outdoor living, the lifestyle that brought generations of vacationers to the lakes and mountains of upstate New York has much more influence today than as geographic region. Adirondack has become an enduring style, rich with furnishings handcrafted from indigenous materials. Birch bark veneer on bureaus, chests of drawers, lampshades, mirror frames, and more is the most readily identified icon of Adirondack style. The application of twigs in geometric or mosaic patterns is emulated all over the country.
For cabin or camp, vacation house or permanent residence, the spirit of the Adirondacks is the epitome of mountain living. Ralph Kylloe's love for the region informs his brilliant photography and pithy commentary.
