"A gifted artist who takes woodworking to a new level, there is no one in John's league. John Yarema is the Michelangelo of wood floors."--Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mary Richardson Kennedy Wood by Designpresents a massive body of work by John Yarema, one of the world's most dynamic craftsmen. Full-color photographs from homes and businesses across the globe showcase the opulence of his designs. This monograph features some of Yarema's most brilliant interiors, one-of-a-kind masterpieces that convey his unparalleled skill and true artistry. From the naissance of his career over twenty years ago, Yarema has worked with recycled, locally sourced, often salvaged materials--a practice that reflects his commitment to sustainability and his conviction that environmentally responsible methods are not only viable, but essential, to the future of high-end design. This book details his methods and practices for ethical design. John Yaremadiscovered his passion for the craft of wood flooring and design in 1991, when he and his wife moved into a nineteenth century one-room schoolhouse and renovated the building from top to bottom. This project proved to be a life-changing event, and ever since Yarema has specialized in creating exquisite hardwood floors and interiors using sustainable building techniques. He has been commissioned to design projects for the SC Johnson complex, the Kennedy Green House, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, and residential clients from New York to Moscow to Los Angeles.
