Written by Dorothée Boissier and Patrick Gilles, Text by Pierre Léonforte, Foreword by Remo Ruffini
The French design duo Gilles & Boissier presents their sumptuously chic interiors and the artistic inspirations behind them.
In 2004, Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier—partners both at work and in life—founded their Paris-based interior design studio and furniture line, Gilles & Boissier. The maturity of their style, their simple yet sophisticated aesthetic, and the cinematographic compositions of their interiors allowed the brand to quickly ascend and gain reputation. Front-page designers in the world of interiors, they create projects for private clients and luxury brands all over the world.
A unique celebration of their approach to contemporary design, this debut monograph centers on the duo’s love of art, and how this shared passion has inspired their interiors. The designers present the inspirations behind their must renowned projects: the much-lauded Baccarat Hotel in New York is an ode to sensual, maximalist style; a palatial private residence on Italy’s Lake Como emerges as a study of classical beauty; while a traditional French vacation home in Biarritz comes alive amidst lively pieces by Wolfang Tillmans, among others. Part interior design monograph, part art book, this new volume will appeal to anyone with an interest in visual arts and stylish French interiors.
