The Bookshelf: “Liaigre: Twelve Projects” By Christian LiaigreAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Christian Liaigre, the man responsible for making sure the likes of Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld, and Rupert Murdoch live in style, is giving the world a sneak peak of his visionary projects.
In Liaigre: Twelve Projects, the renowned French interior designer showcases a dozen of his most recent creations that span the globe from the Caribbean to New York to South Korea, and beyond.
Each of the twelve projects selected for the book reflects Liaigre’s deeply artistic style and traditional French influence. His work is painstakingly detailed, bringing careful attention to every last design element, from window positioning to door handle shapes.
Liaigre’s design aesthetic is overwhelmingly elegant and balanced, drawing inspiration from local traditions, and making use of classic and natural materials. Each of the book’s twelve projects is unique and customized to the client and location.
Twelve Projects is Liaigre’s third book; his previous work includes Maison (2004) and Christian Liaigre (2008). In addition to designing homes for big name clients, Liaigre is responsible for the iconic interiors of New York’s Mercer Hotel, London’s Hakkasan restaurant, the Hotel Montalembert and La Societe restaurant in Paris, and Club Med in Bora Bora. Liaigre also has 25 showrooms around the world including locations in London, Paris, Brussels, Moscow, and Bangkok.
