French designer Christian Liaigre (1943-2020) has built a reputation of refinement and quality. He combined modesty with elegance by respecting the design and traditions of the local culture, a clever use of space and light, his choice of materials and the love for the arts and crafts.
Reprint of the success book of 2008 which takes us inside six exclusive properties to unveil Liaigre’s luxurious world of design. He unleashes his masterful eye on diverse, international settings—a hidden Spanish residence, a luxury yacht, a massive Swiss farmstead, a thatched-roof paradise in Bora Bora, a modern Canadian manor, and a villa in the South of France. He combines local materials with the personality of the owner, while remaining true to the signature style that has made him one of the most sought-after designers of our time. Close-up photographs feature a wealth of design details—embossed leather and velour upholstery, generously proportioned furniture, and splashes of jewel-tone accessories that sparkle against the warm earthy tones of the natural, local materials. These creative details are contextualized via panoramic views throughout the book.
