Effortless Style: Casa Lopez

Pierre Sauvage, designer of luxury homewares and interiors, brings the reader inside his French homesboth urban and countryproviding inspiration and advice for creating effortlessly elegant interiors and garden spaces.
 
Against the backdrop of his exceptional homes in France, Pierre Sauvage—owner and art director of Casa Lopez, the legendary Parisian housewares firm whose stylish furnishings feature exceptional handicraft produced in France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal—showcases his very personal and contemporary style of decorating and entertaining. His striking use of color and textures sets the tone for each room and serves as a counterpoint to his playful matchings of materials and patterns, which work equally well in his Parisian apartment, rustic farmhouse in Normandy, and stone summer home in Provence. With discriminating taste, Sauvage pairs modern furniture with singular antiques. From bold interiors to elegant outdoor spaces, each home is infused with his connoisseur’s eye for refined details.
 
Stunning photography commissioned for this book under Sauvage’s art direction provides inspiration for interiors that exude a charm and elegance that is decidedly contemporary, yet conveys the timeless allure of a home that has been passed down over generations. A dozen recipes for entertaining with style complete the volume.

Reviews

“’I am not an interior designer,’” Pierre Sauvage sets the record straight. And yet, for all his protestations to the contrary, his bold aesthetic, color palette, playful pairings and enviable eye for detail are unmatched—and envied the nation over. Never one to pander to fads or trends, the assured (and autodidactic) director of luxury housewares firm Casa Lopez has blazed his own trail, mainly under the radar—until now. In his first book-cum-manifesto, Effortless Style, the former PR guru lays out the tenets of his boho philosophy and go-to essentials against the background of his own swoon-worthy home trifecta: his swish Haussmannian pad, Norman maison de campagne, and Provençal farm. Accessible, and refreshingly unpretentious, Sauvage’s ode to modern comfort is just the ticket to freshen up those lackluster interiors ready for summer. Our new design bible!”
