The Great American House


This is the first book on Schafer’s work and will get enormous attention from the shelter magazines who love him and his work, like Veranda.

Gil Schafer is consistently recognized as one of the world’s experts on contemporary classical architecture. From 1999 to 2006 Gil served as President and then Chairman of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America; he is currently on its Board of Directors.

His work has been featured in many publications including Departures, Domino, the International Herald Tribune, Elle Décor, the New York Times, House & Garden, New Old House, Period Homes, and Town & Country.

He was recently awarded one of the 2010 Veranda Art of Design Architecture Award for “industry trailblazers whose work is both innovative and timeless.”

Like Suzanne Kasler, Schafer is a frequent lecturer who will be out promoting the book throughout the year at his various events.

Complete with examples that show the building of a new old house and the restoration of a historic home, as well as an in-depth discussion of architecture, interior design, landscaping and grounds, this volume offers insightful guidance to both homeowners and architects.

Book will also include a foreword by Bunny Williams and will feature Schafer’s collaborations with such interior designers as Miles Redd and Michael S. Smith.
