Christian Liaigre, a visionary interior designer, unveils twelve of his most recent projects from around the world in this exquisite large-format volume. Over the past twenty-five years, Christian Liaigre has built his reputation on the refined quality of his furniture and interiors. With a keen sensibility for space and light, design inspiration drawn from local cultures and traditions, meticulous attention given to the sourcing of materials, and an affinity for artisanal work, the designer combines the art of understatement with great elegance. According to Liaigre, interior architecture and design should not be a reflection of fashion and trends but rather embody timelessness, tranquil beauty, and subtle luxury. He believes that comfort does not lie in trivial affluence but in delicacy and rareness. Since his last book in 2008, he has been designing both private and public interiors around the world—from New York to Athens, from the island of St Barts to the mountains of St Moritz, and beyond. This new book takes the reader inside his rarefied world, highlighting his freshest creations and encompassing the full range of his talents in furniture and interior design, revealing his signature style. The large-format volume with cloth-bound spine offers inspiration for both professional architects and interior designers as well.
