With a foreword by Miles Redd, this luxury decorating resource trains the eye to accept long-lasting, high-quality home goods and use them to dazzling design effect.
It’s all about the quality. The furniture, objects, and aspects of our rooms should all speak to an enduring sense of beauty and comfort, just as a home’s foundation should. They should outlast fashion trends and our adoration for them daily. But how does one determine whether or not something is of good quality?
Christiane Lemieux set out to find an answer to this question by interviewing some of the world’s most knowledgeable people. Lemieux has curated an unparalleled education in identifying the hallmarks of timeless, heirloom-quality pieces by weaving together the insights and advice of dozens of wallpaper and paint experts, textile fabricators, accessories artisans, and interior designers. Hundreds of elegant home interiors—both iconic examples from the past and stunning residences today—demonstrate the wide range of luxurious and customised environments that fine décor can create.
