DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Artistic Interiors is an extraordinary volume featuring the work of prestigious architectural interior designer Suzanne Lovell. Hundreds of full color photographs feature her unique approach toward designing couture environments that create an expressive home through the integration of architecture, sophisticated materials, and fine art. Exploring more than a dozen residences, Lovell takes the reader on a journey through homes with sumptuous interiors, finely crafted details, and exceptional collections. A lifestyle architect practicing at the intersection of architecture and interiors, design and art, Lovell's work incorporates an expansive array of paintings, drawings, and photography, ceramics and sculpture, textiles, custom furnishings, and antiques. Suzanne Lovell is the go-to designer for the passionate collector and Artistic Interiors offers a glimpse into her distinct design process through striking images of her work. Praise for Artistic Interiors: “For Suzanne Lovell, a well-designed room serves as a frame for the art it displays. In more than twelve featured projects, Lovell tailors her aesthetic to highlight her clients’ collections, resulting in graceful, harmonious spaces that are enhanced with works by Kara Walker, Vik Muniz, and Henri Matisse, among others.” —Architectural Digest “Perfect for gift giving; the holidays fast approach.” —Ebony “An instant education in how art and furniture can live in harmony.” —Chicago magazine “This book will have a special appeal to those looking for a sophisticated point of view in Midwestern abodes.” —Library Journal !--StartFragment-- “Although unmistakably modern, Suzanne Lovell’s carefully detailed style has a classic quality, frequently incorporating antiques as well as furniture by early-twentieth-century luminaries. She displays whimsical folk art with as much sophistication and integrity as highly important works by celebrated artists, past and present, and the book’s text is adept at explaining the thinking behind her designing.” —House & Garden (UK) “The book—beautifully designed by Doug Turshen, with David Huang, using the work of a handful of photographers led by Tony Soluri—makes her mastery of dimension, volume, material, form, color, scale, period, and detail exceptionally vivid.” —1stDibs.com “A sumptuous new volume by celebrated architect-designer Suzanne Lovell. Lovell offers intimate access to fourteen couture environments in which she has temptingly integrated architecture, materials, fine art, and the client's ‘soul and sensibility.’”—Private Clubs

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This first volume on François Catroux is a comprehensive consideration of the work and life of an international master of interior design. François Catroux is an innovator and explorer in interior design, who has always been a master of contemporary style. From his early days as a design prodigy, creating space-age boutiques for a house of couture and apartments that drew from Art Deco and modern design, to chic, mirror-studded interiors rich with glamour and elegant refinement in residences in Hong Kong, New York, and London, Catroux is at home in the vast world of design. His spaces may surprise with the introduction of irregular elements—a chandelier of elk horn or pink florescent lighting in a hallway—but Catroux’s hallmark sensibility combines the majesty and grandeur of high ceilings, elegant moldings, and gossamer draperies with elements that suggest comfort and tasteful, restrained opulence. Go-to accoutrements include sumptuous sofas, rich carpeting, gentle lighting, rooms lined with books, and ship staterooms in warm wood paneling with brass lamps, all measured according to a modern eye. This book looks at Catroux’s career chronologically, featuring his first projects in 1968 through his latest, completed only this year, and includes the interiors of houses and apartments around the globe, from Paris to New York, Hong Kong to Los Angeles. Luxuriously photographed, this volume is more than just a design monograph on one of the great, and so far relatively untold, careers in the history of design—it is also a lively and intimate read about a life lived in great style.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

No one interested in fashion, style, or the high-flying intrigues of café society will want to miss Christopher Petkanas’s exuberantly entertaining oral biography Loulou & Yves: The Untold Story of Loulou de La Falaise and the House of Saint Laurent. Dauntless, “in the bone” style made Loulou de La Falaise one of the great fashion firebrands of the twentieth century. Descending in a direct line from Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, she was celebrated at her death in 2011, aged just sixty-four, as the “highest of haute bohemia,” a feckless adventuress in the art of living—and the one person Yves Saint Laurent could not live without. Yves was the most influential designer of his times; possibly also the most neurasthenic. In an exquisitely intimate, sometimes painful personal and professional relationship, Loulou was his creative right hand, muse, alter ego and the virtuoso behind all the flamboyant accessories that were a crucial component of the YSL “look.” For thirty years, until his retirement in 2002, Yves relied on Loulou to inspire him, make him laugh and talk him off the ledge—the enchanted formula that brought him from one historic collection to the next. Yves’s many tributes shape Loulou’s memory, as if everything there was to know about this fugitive, Giacometti-like figure could be told by her clanking bronze cuffs, towering fur toques, the turquoise boulders on her fingers and her working friendship with the man who put women in pants. But another, darker story lifts the veil on Loulou, a classic “number two” with a contempt for convention, and exposes the underbelly of fashion at its highest level. Behind Yves’s encomiums are a pair of aristocrat parents—Loulou’s shiftless French father and menacingly chic English mother—who abandoned her to a childhood of foster care and sexual abuse; Loulou’s recurring desperation to leave Yves and go out on her own; and the grandiose myths surrounding her family. Loulou felt that her life had been kidnapped by the operatic workings of the House of Saint Laurent, and in her last years faced financial ruin. Loulou & Yves unspools an elusive fashion idol—nymphomaniacal, heedless and up to her bracelets in coke and Boizel champagne—at the core of what used to be called “le beau monde.”

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Explore the soul of Maine in some three dozen of its most original, authentic, and evocative houses For several years, acclaimed photographer Maura McEvoy and art director Basha Burwell traveled the length and breadth of Maine in search of houses that capture the state's singular character. These are not designer houses; they are homes created by the people who live in them, from artists to writers to fishermen, distinctive for their ingenuity, originality, and fierce individuality. Many are unchanged, inhabited by generations of the same family; some are ingenious conversions. As Kathleen Hackett observes in her eloquant text, these are homes that have a kind of visual wealth that money can't buy, homes that define the very spirit of Maine.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Loulou de la Falaise is the first monograph to celebrate the life and work of the style icon and muse to Yves Saint Laurent who became the embodiment of French chic. Renowned for her bohemian chic, daring style as well as for her lightness, nonchalance, and humor, Loulou de la Falaise was not only an influential fashion icon but also a breath of fresh air to the world of Parisian haute couture. The Anglo-French beauty assisted the designer Halston and modeled briefly for Diana Vreeland’s Vogue before moving to Paris in 1972 to work alongside the iconic designer Yves Saint Laurent. A true original, her sense of color and fantasy and her attitude would energize the mythic house and fashion in general. For almost forty years, de la Falaise would forge her professional reputation designing extraordinary jewelry and accessories both for Yves Saint Laurent as well as for her own line. This elegant volume is a life in pictures, with over 400 images by legendary contemporary photographers, from Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon to Steven Meisel and Bettina Rheims, as well as an essay by Pierre Bergé and interviews with Loulou intimates such as Betty Catroux, Inès de la Fressange, Diane von Furstenberg, Christian Louboutin, Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, André Leon Talley, and Oscar de la Renta. A celebrated style icon from the ’60s until her death, Loulou's appetite and flair for fashion continues to be an inspiration today.
