Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Fresh off the (online) press: Our friends at UK-based Toast have just launched the Autumn/Winter 2011 House & Home catalog; photographed in situ in two different houses designed by London-based architect Jonathan Tuckey (see Architect VIsit: Jonathan Tuckey in London). Tuckey specializes in "remodeling and radically transforming old buildings for modern uses," an approach that makes his work the ideal backdrop for Toast's classic yet subtly mod offerings for the home.
