Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Liaigre's spare, Zen-meets-luxury aesthetic is instantly recognizable in these six sumptuously designed locations. The first spreads are of a house in Orense, Spain: cue lots of dark wood, deep reds and rich leathers, with such Iberian flourishes as a sofa embroidered with motifs drawn from toreadors' costumes. The rest of the book takes a romp through five similarly lush interiors, including a 184-foot yacht, an island sanctuary in Bora Bora and homes in Geneva, Toronto and the Côte d'Azur. Part of the pleasure of the book lies in the material voyeurism it provides; it's always fun to see how the other half lives. The risk of having such a distinctive style as Liaigre, however, is that after a while it starts to look a little dated, and for all the clean lines and pleasing textures, these interiors look like they were created as sets for lifestyle magazines—something ultimately antihuman and contrived lingers. No matter: the designer has plenty of fans, and for those who want just a touch of Liaigrism, there will no doubt soon be plenty of mainstream knockoff versions of his oft-imitated look. (Sept.)

"With text...and photography...Liaigre reveals the way he conceives and choreographs each detail of every environment he touches." --Veranda

"This suitably lavish and striking book, unlike most designer monographs, limits itself to only six of the subject's recent interiors, allowing an unusual degree of familiarity with each." ~Interior Design Magazine

"This oversized book...stands as a work of art shown in both color and black and white." ~Newsday

" is definitely a fantasy book filled with jaw-dropping photography, it also reveals Liaigre's unmatched attention to detail. Keep it on your coffee table and thumb through when you are in need of a Cinderella moment."

"Courtesy of a sneak preview from the great folks at Rizzoli, TT was enthralled by page after page of the most elegant and sophisticated, yet somehow understated, interiors imaginable."

I have to say the second book does not impress as much as the first book. Thought the first book was much more beautiful in terms of visual aesthetics. Too much digital photography was used in this second book and it didn't really fit the style of the design so well because it made it look cold. In terms of content this book was more interesting than the first book because it offered a more analytical look at the projects and not just a visual glorification. Definitely worth the money if you are a true fan, however if you had to pick between the two I'd get the first one first then get this one.

The book is stunningly photographed, with lovely print quality, an excellent coffee table book. That said, having been to several of the projects, I felt that the photography was selected for its beauty rather than giving a sense of the spaces, the dynamic of the architecture, etc. Liaigre is a master of the details, and of the big picture. This book captures the former spectacularly, but is weak on the latter.

This book is amazing, it's true, the unbelievable attention to detail, the craftsmanship and the modern luxury on display is sort of mind-blowing. These are the homes of modern day royalty and so it's a great opportunity to see what can be done when only the very best will do. There is plenty of classically Liaigre-esque "sensual minimalism" to ogle over, but somehow in "Liaigre" there's more of a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous vibe that to me feels a bit off-putting and claustrophobic. Liaigre as a designer is clearly evolving and trying new things, so that's interesting to see, but I wouldn't say his ideas seem more creative overall, just more Baroque and expensive. And the clients' personalities seem kind of lost. Maybe it's just familiarity with his work, but I think the first book, "Maison", is more accessible and, frankly, better. Having said that I like both and I am still a huge Liaigre fan. If you love the first book and want more of the same, I might try Vincent van Duysen's new book or maybe John Pawson instead.

I just recieved this book, and it's my new favorite! I have his last book which I also loved. This time around, the flavor of the design is a lot more diverse. The large size, the nice thick paper, the beautiful photos, and the great way the pictures are layed out make this book an important book to have in your design library. Even if you're not familiar with this designers work, you will definitely find great details and modern ways of looking at design without the design becoming so cold and "chrome and glass". GET THIS BOOK!!!
