Reviews

'Maloney and his partner, the architect Hermes Mallea, design houses and apartments for clients who collect Modiglianis and Roman sculpture, but for the first book on their work, the last thing they wanted was a standard coffee-table monograph, full of beautiful but static photographs.' New York Times Magazine 'The tome is more than a portfolio of pretty interiors or striking architecture-it features an interactive component that allows readers to access the museums, dealers, shops and more that Maloney himself consults.' Time.Com 'This book is a treasure trove. It's all the magnificent obsession.' New York Social Diary Carey Maloney invites readers inside the homes of impassioned collectors, detailing the wide variety of art and objects that go into the creation of M(Group)'s complex, richly layered, and beautifully orchestrated interiors. EditorAtLarge.com Designer Carey Maloney's first book is an obsessive, compulsive, brilliantly high-low primer to all the things-furniture, art, objects-that make a house truly personal. House Beautiful Maloney is too deeply interested in the history of design to miss an opportunity to use and highlight a fascinating piece, wherever it comes from. His just-so placement saves it from busyness... The official motto of Stuff is 'Have fun-and learn something.' Mission accomplished on both counts. 1stDibs Style Compass Interior designer Carey Maloney ... has the enviable gift of making his interests, be they erudite or off-the-wall, compelling and entertaining to others. ... Maloney uses erudition, anecdote, and telling detail to convey his passion for the things he puts in rooms. Rural Intelligence It's marvelous! Stuff is a visual delight, highly entertaining, and jam-packed with interesting information. -- Reggie Darling
