SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, November 4, Dwell Magazine's Special Issue, Best Homes In America, hits newsstands nationwide. The magazine takes readers on a visual ride through homes that represent the very best in modern design and American ingenuity. The collectors item book takes you from the deserts of California to the gritty streets of New York to the picturesque shores of New England. Each story highlights unique design attributes that give readers great ideas and showcase modern innovation and technology that can be incorporated into their homes.
Culled from past issues of the magazine, editors have selected 13 homes that embody the Dwell philosophy. From Walter Gropius' precariously balanced seaside Hagerty House to an unexpected beacon of modern design in rural Iowa – these residences show innovation in design, concept and decor, while simultaneously proving to be American classics. Each feature article is followed by a glossary of the products and furniture that appear in the story.
"These American homes receive our estimation of "Best" because they are all beautiful and inspiring, yes, but above all because they simply and perfectly suit the needs of those who inhabit them," says Dwell Executive Editor Amanda Dameron.
The magazine will be available at Barnes & Noble, Whole Foods, Hudson News and other news outlets through January. It costs $9.99 and is available on newsstands only.
