"David Netto’s book on A-list interior designer Francois Catroux was also years in the making, requiring two years alone to convince his subject to agree to the book. Though Catroux’s work has been published in magazines and books, this is the first time that his body of work is laid out in a much-awaited tome."
"The images in the book are remarkable and author, David Netto, narrates an engaging tale. . . . I am older, wiser and perhaps a bit less prone to gush, but do buy this book. It will show you a thing or two about style and courage and balance."
"In the visual biography François Catroux (Rizzoli), the legendary interior designer looks back chronologically at his incredibly chic body of work, offering new insight into projects like the first Paris apartment he shared with his wife, the Yves Saint Laurent muse Betty Catroux, and the mega-yacht he decorated for Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg."
"Now here's a book dripping in sexy spaces I can't get enough of. What is it with these French designers? A must for the luxe-loving design enthusiast."
"Despite disperate locations, they all share the Catroux DNA of unexpected elements combined with classic sumptuous foundations."
–Pretty Page Turner
