The Chamber of Curiosity by Gestalten is a collection of the best interiors from around the world, also with a strong emphasis on their occupants and their individual characters. Featuring the homes of designers and architects from Paris to Pittsburgh and Milan to Melbourne, the reader has the opportunity to view these personal interiors that are richly diverse from one another.  As its title suggests, each home is indeed a ''Chamber of Curiosity''. Further reflecting the unconventional life patterns of its inhabitants, the reader is taken deeper, and on a tour of these exciting interiors relaying the inhabitant's deep appreciation of design.

You will recognise some of these images and that is because they dare to do the unexpected, mixing unlikely combinations of colour, texture and styles. These are interiors that simply can’t be replicated due to their very personal soul.
