Fine.'Jacques Grange has been transforming the private havens of elite clients and serious art collectors such as Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Paloma Picasso, and Caroline of Monaco for four decades. With an architect's sense of proportion and an artist's gift for colour, shape, and material, Grange reinvents each living space into a striking and singular interior. In this impressive first monograph of Grange's creations, oriental and North African influences blend with Western styles, from rococo opulence to modern chic, to create a broad spectrum of visual effects. Contemporary works of art by the Lalannes, for example, are given pride of place according to Grange's undeniable flair and collector's eye. But, remarkably, Grange is not afraid to strip everything away, to make space itself the main focus of a room. Always balancing virtuoso flourishes with tasteful understatement, Grange's touch is unique.' (from the flyleaf).
