If you are a fan on the 70's era decor, fashion and lifestyle, then this is definitely the book for you. It comes full of vivid photographs, pad profiles, and "do it your self" interior decorating ideas. Where else can you find a book that shows you how to make your very own "Porno Chic Love Lamp"? I dare you to put this book on the coffee table for your next party.

This is an odd collection of decorating ideas, personal style and art that amuses and thrills. I would never decorate my home with some of these projects, but it's great fun to leave around as a coffee table book. Excellent text and photos, the cover is textured and has a cut out which shows the quality of the this book. A good gift for the fun loving artist in your life, even if it's you.

I like eccentricity and clutter. I appreciate a highly personal sense of style, and always enjoy seeing someone with unique tastes really 'commit' to making their home a personal statement.

That said, I was a bit disappointed in this book. About a quarter of it I really enjoyed, but most of it did not impress me all that much. Some of the homes featured actually struck me as a bit bland and pedestrian (particularly the two minimalists, who seemed really out of place in this book). Several of my friends have homes far more stylish and visually eclectic than many of the ones featured in this book.

I'm an artist/musician and pop culture/paleontology/geology collector who is looking to jazz up my apartment into a swankier bachelor pad. I'm always on the lookout for cool design ideas and inspiration, and clever ways to integrate one's collection of oddities into their decor. As a red-blooded male though who is working on transforming his pad more into an irresistible babe lair, very little of the men's homes featured in this book appealed to me. Several stuck me as going for a "Liberace-on-a-budget" look. There were a couple of homes however that I did really like though, but they were outnumbered by the overly flamboyant ones.

This is a fun, but strange book. I ran across it in a shop that sold some retro items, but the price was a bit high. When I found it here, I snagged it quick. If your "pad" has a retro motif, this guide may help some. However, it's mostly just on recovery of junk. I found really no use for any of this, whatsoever.

Pad: Is indeed an innovative coffee table book showing not only a variety of decor styles from mid century modern, space age to 60s mod and 70s kitch, but also gives interior designers crafts and ideas for creating unusual and personal spaces for a variety of personalities.

Modern replications can sometimes be extremely pricely. I like this that Pad gives everyone from professional designers to a typical college student, how to create innovative and fun spaces on a shoe string budget.

As a fan of mid century 1950s modern, I found some great ideas in this book.. There are some really outrageous interior designs too. I would recommend this for anyone interested in mid century through 70s decor. Or anyone into the bizarre and kitchy as well

It seems like so many people have reviewed this book on the basis of one or two of the rooms in it: the comments about clutter and nightmare "before" rooms are applicable to perhaps 1/4 of the homes shown in the book, and some lovely examples of the opposite have been ignored. PAD is not about junk-hunting at flea-markets or creating a "look", unless the look you want is retro-modern-surrealism. It is very much about subcultural decorating and lifestyles, and unlike most current design books I've seen, it has some very original and interesting projects in it. The flame pit is great (and extremely adaptable); the resin coasters are something you'd pay big bucks for in a hip little downtown store; the porno lamp is probably a really bad idea and I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. A decorating pitfall that people fall into is purchasing ill-made basics with no personality from cheap chain stores; PAD will rescue you from ugly chintz bedcovers. Many negative reviews of this book have failed to mention that it is text-heavy, which both expands on the photos and puts them in context. A book with a page of cocktail garnishes, plants it might be hard to kill, and directions on how to make a shag-fur covered television cabinet is definitely *NOT* aimed at the Tasteful Decor crowd, so I don't know why those people bothered and why they're bothering to complain: this is Urban Outfitters, not Pottery Barn. This book is for kitsch fanatics, art freaks, and people with a little bit of punk rock in their soul... all others should beware.
