With the Mai­son + Ob­ject Paris show be­gin­ning this month, the de­sign world will gather to see the lat­est and great­est the city can of­fer – and to try and see ex­actly what this gor­geous new vol­ume aims to re­veal: what it means to live in style in the City of Light.

Be­gin­ning with a lovely in­tro­duc­tion by Sarkozy, famed in­te­rior de­signer and half-sis­ter to the former French Pres­i­dent, 22 pro­jects are fea­tured through­out the vol­ume’s 224 pages (in­clud­ing two of her own pro­jects). They’re ac­com­pa­nied by 200 colour pho­tos from renowned photographer Jean-François Jaus­saud, which beau­ti­fully cap­ture the spirit of each cre­ation of es­tab­lished in­te­rior de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects.

Im­me­di­ately recog­nis­able to those in the know, the fea­tured res­i­den­tial de­signs from names such as Joseph Di­rand, Frédéric Méchiche, Patrick Per­rin, Juan Mon­toya and Olivier Dwek are tra­di­tional, his­toric, con­tem­po­rary, mod­ern and – more of­ten than not – eclec­tic.

With texts in English, French and Ger­man, the book speaks to a global au­di­ence with its dra­matic vis­ual show­case. A tes­ta­ment to the re­sources both of clients and cre­ators, this lush vol­ume is bound for the cof­fee ta­bles of those who em­brace an as­pi­ra­tional life­style.
