About This Book

The first book on the work of a designer whose refined classical interiors are widely desired and emulated as the epitome of French style. Honored as one of the top designers by all the international design magazines and universally admired by design editors, Jean-Louis Deniot is in demand. His updated classical approach now graces interiors in Paris, the French countryside, Moscow, India, New York, Chicago, L.A., and beyond—and his legacy is already being compared to that of design greats such as Jacques Grange and Alberto Pinto. Deniot is an architect first, ensuring that the interior architecture of his rooms is harmonious before giving a neoclassical approach to the decor. He brings education, logic, and design history to his work, with one eye looking at the most refined style of French eighteenth century and one eye on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His mix is highly individual and includes contemporary art and custom-made furniture, yet his rooms always look comfortable and are never overly formal or trendy. This book demonstrates a new, sophisticated classical style that is changing the scene for international design and offering inspiration and ideas to decorators, homeowners, and antiques enthusiasts.

    Jean-Louis Deniot: Interiors is a lushly photographed introduction to the decorator's sophisticated and layered blend of worlds old and new. The book highlights his amazing range, whether he is designing a soigné Chicago apartment that would not be out of place on Paris's Right Bank or restoring the 18th-century working farm he owns with his sister Virginie outside of Touraine, in France's Loire Valley.” —Elle Décor

    “…Saeks treats each interior photo to an information-packed caption. This is where you will find details as to which fabric Deniot chose for that particular room. Second, the text is peppered with tidbits of Deniot's design philosophy, something which, in a way, makes this book read like a master class in sophisticated decorating.  Couple the compelling text with the book's beautifully-shot photos, and you have a tome that will leave you feeling inspired and informed, too.” –Peak of Chic

    “…Deniot’s interiors are like treasure chests…” –StyleCarrot
     
     “One of the most elegant design books this season...Deniot, has an innate sense of what is right and necessary. His design sensibilities are Classical-along with a sophisticated stylishness uniquely his own. There are many great designers- but in Deniot, I see a rigorous technician with an immense soul. He is indeed, a virtuoso. The book too, reveals a designer whose confidence is absolute, but maintains he makes an effort for his attention and intention to go quite unnoticed.” –Little Augury
     
    “This is the first book on young French designer Jean-Louis Deniot, who is bit of a supernova on the international scene. His spaces mix iconic pieces from various eras with one-off flea market items or even an Ikea throw, creating a surprising and delightful cohesion.” –Star Telegram
