Is it possible to design the perfect room? Doubtful. If you are lucky enough, however, to pick up a copy of Phaidon Publishing's new book Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century, you will come away with a greater appreciation for the art of design and the endless pursuit of creating beautiful spaces. The book features over 400 of the world's greatest living spaces by 300 of the most important interior designers and architects. With beautiful color photography, excellent summaries of the featured rooms, and four stylish cover designs to choose, Interiors is a treasure. The slideshow below features ten rooms from Interiors with unique and sometimes controversial histories but with incredible designs that rank among the last century's greatest.
