Foreword by Bernard-Henri Levy, Text by François Halard and Pierre Le-Tan and Simon Liberati and Jorge Semprun
From Vincent Darré, a French dandy and eccentric decorator, this volume offers a fanciful look into his unique universe of artful interiors.
Known for his dynamic personality and extravagant style, Vincent Darré--the enfant terrible of Paris's design world--presents a debut monograph brimming with his hallmark flamboyant whimsy, unrivaled imagination, and Gallic flair. As a fixture of the city's nightlife scene and member of its exclusive artistic circles, Darré is arguably one of its most creative residents (prior to launching his decorating career, he held posts at top fashion houses)--which comes through in his instantly recognizable interiors: think Surrealist furniture, dizzying patterns, and spirited color combinations.
Boasting over 200 vibrantly colored photographs, this exquisite tome takes readers on a journey into Darré's world of conversation-starting spaces. From his signature furnishings, such as the Grenouille nightstand, and maximalist use of prints (cue the Little Prince Bedroom), to his expert use of vivid hues, he offers an intimate glimpse into the singular, utterly enthralling universe of one of the design world's most eccentric, quirky, and celebrated members.
