From the cult magazine, Kinfolk, comes the much anticipated Kinfolk Home. Interest in home design has been on the rise for some time, but Kinfolk’s focus on slowing down and creating a more intentional, beautiful home is where the attention is shifting. Through luscious photographs and insightful interviews, The Kinfolk Home takes us into 40 homes around the world, from the Americas to Europe, Asia to Africa, ending in Australia. The homes range from an old cabin in the woods to clean-lined modern apartments, from singles living in small spaces to sprawling, multigenerational houses in the country. Each will feel unmistakably Kinfolk. The book will function as a companion piece to The Kinfolk Table, and will be the same size and format.
