Tropical Modern celebrates a growing trend toward stylish globalization in interior design. More than 25 stunning houses and condos in and around Manila, the Philippines, evoke a distinctive tropical-modern-fusion style that is gaining popularity around the world. All these fine residences comprise a synthesis of East-West trends and contemporary furnishings - as Filipino designers merge sleek modernist furniture with local designers' "soulful creations" in natural hardwoods and other tropical materials. From vintage glamour to classic modern with bold artful accents, to the clean, glam look known as 'contemporary chic,' this book showcases the myriad tastes of the Philippines. The selection features modernist designs referred to as Zen or Minimalist; admires the modern Global Eclectics, those well traveled collectors of beautiful objects from East and West; and celebrates the individualists who mix European furniture with acutely creative accents from local designers or who frame edgy artworks by Filipino artists with iconic design inspired by Japanese architecture. Such are the global interiors of today's tropical Asia.
