Design and architecture enthusiasts, francophiles, lovers of gorgeous books…. get ready for an incredible book - publishing October 2014- today we share a PREVIEW of design awesomeness. Tell every French Culture Vulture you know. It is dreamy. I was already a Jean-Louis Deniot fan… but wow, his style has even more range than I realized. If I showed you everything I liked, Rizzoli would not be happy with me. Every page of JEAN-LOUIS DENIOT: Interiors is visually stunning, with 250 photographs by Xavier Bejot. Diane Dorrans Saeks will transport you into these wondrous rooms with her elegant prose. 288 pages of design heaven, it is the first ever book devoted to Deniot's work. This is the kind of book that you want to make an entire day of.

Divided into chapters dedicated to historic houses, residences, and private apartments on the Left Bank, the Right Bank, in the French countryside, with another titled French Projects in America, JEAN-LOUIS DENIOT INTERIORS provides the reader with a detailed look at the Paris-based designer’s sensibility, inspirations, and a dazzling array of his most varied projects.
The book opens with Deniot’s own residence in Paris, and ranges from a jewel-box pied-à-terre overlooking Notre Dame, to his sister and business partner Virginie’s country house in Touraine; from a glittering art-filled Chicago apartment steeped in cool Parisian glamour, to a sunny Paul R. Williams house in Hollywood that is Deniot’s home when work and life bring him to LA. In all, there are eighteen different projects shown in great detail, which will make it clear to the reader why this young designer is spoken of in the same breath as that of greats such as Jacques Grange and Alberto Pinto. I was transfixed by a home that begins on page 39- located in the sixth arrondissement, across the river form the Louvre, which is owned by an American couple who was smart enough to hire Jean-Louis Deniot. It is said to be one of the most beautiful in the Faubourg Saint-Germain. I believe it; he intelligently blends serious antiques with modern glamor, making his projects look as if they had come together over centuries, not months. He is master of the mix of periods, artists, metals, and points of view.
