Henry Ford might have thought history was bunk, but a new generation of designers is taking a fresh look at the past.

Roman and Williams preserves New York's memory in hotels like the Standard and the Ace, while across the pond Lee Broom reworks history and heritage in nightspots like Coquine. Also in London, Gary Card channels an industrial-age yet crafty vibe in his Late Night Chameleon Café. In Shanghai, Art Deco has inspired One Plus Partnership's opulent cinema, while Tom Dixon revisits colonial grandeur with a ballroom in Hong Kong. Finally, we look back at the career of Interior Design cover artist and master of retro elegance, Jeremiah Goodman.
