Written by Lauren Rottet, Foreword by Paul Goldberger
A luxurious presentation of the work of a celebrated American designer and architect known for creating spaces that balance modern simplicity and historic detail.
This book features the work of Lauren Rottet over the past fifteen years and includes the interiors of houses, apartments, hotels, and design studio offices in the wide range of styles at which Rottet Studio is adept, from elegant Modernism to Beaux-Arts classicism. Rottet-designed spaces are artfully curated living/working spaces that transcend their formal use and become places in which people ponder, experience, and are inspired. These environments, though immediately beautiful to the eye, are not meant to be one-moment impacts and instead are designed to reveal themselves over time. Above all, her elegant, contemporary designs, like pieces of art, emphasize transparency and light.
“A minimalist at heart,” Rottet “would happily live in a white box with beautiful light.” But her influences are varied and her love of historic architecture, art, lovely objects, and well-edited decoration is deep, as is evident in her work.
